The Franciscan Church and Friary

2600 Vác, Géza király tér
The oldest church of Vác belonged to the Franciscans. It stood on the place of the old fortress destroyed during the siege of the Turks in 1685.

Using the stones of the fortress, people built a new church in Baroque style.

The main ornament of the church is the richly decorated early Rococo two-storeyed wooden altar.

The friary belonging to the church used to give home to Kapisztrán printing office, later was used by György Váczi, a bookbinder. A part of the building is now used as archives.
