Church of St Peter the Apostle (Mosonszentpéter)

The church was built on foundations from the Árpád Era, which is evidenced by the ashlars of the lower third of the tower and the columns in front of the facade. The 16th-century church, which was destroyed several times over the years, was rebuilt in its present Neo-Romaneesque style in 1906. The relief of the high altar depicts St Peter, while statues of King St Stephen and St Elizabeth of the House of Árpád stand beside it. The side altars feature statues of Our Lady of Hungary and the Heart of Jesus. The ceiling frescos of the church’s interior, painted in 1938, depict the Last Supper, St Stephen offering up the country and a view of Pannonhalma.
