ESZTERGOM Basilique

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Coiffée d’un dôme, l’imposante Basilique d’Esztergom – la plus grande église de Hongrie – occupe l’emplacement d’un lieu de culte du XIème siècle. En 1823, peu après le début de sa construction, Beethoven proposa de diriger sa Missa solemnis lors de la consécration de l’église. Mais les travaux avancèrent trop lentement et quand la cérémonie finit par avoir lieu, en 1856, c’est une oeuvre de Liszt, la Messe de Gran (ancien nom d’Esztergom), qui fut exécutée. La chapelle latérale en marbre rouge, dite Bakócz-kápolna, pur exemple du style Renaissance italien, fut édifiée au début du XVIème siècle en un autre endroit. Transportée pierre à pierre au XIXème siècle, elle a été remontée pour être incorporée à la basilique. Remarquez l’autel de marbre blanc, sculpté par un maître florentin. Le trésor, qui constitue la plus riche collection d’objets religieux de toute la Hongrie, comprend une croix de cristal du IXème siècle provenant de Metz et calvaire du roi Mathias datant du XVème siècle
