Holy Trinity (German Spital) Church

The church was constructed next to the decrepit alms-house for German citizens, the so-called German Spital in 1746 in honour of the Holy Trinity thanks to the Cecilia Wagner (widow of Haberle Farkas) Foundation. The richly carved altar is one of Győr’s most beautiful Rococo monuments. The altarpiece between the statues of St John of Nepomuk and St Nicholas was probably painted by István Schaller. The statue of the Virgin Mary on the lateral wall is a copy of the Virgin Mary statue in Mariazell (its back bears the corroborating seal from the famous Austrian shrine and the date 1766). Remarkable Baroque works include framed oil paintings depicting St Joseph, St John the Baptist and St Francis of Borgia.
