Refomed Church

The Church of the Reformed Parish of Győrszemere was built in 1786 in late Baroque style. It can accommodate up to 120 people. Its tower was built in the early 1800s and houses two bells. It was a place of articulation at the time of the Counter-Reformation: worship of the Reformed Church was only allowed to be held here, so the faithful came here from as far away as Mosonmagyaróvár. The most beautiful altar-cloths and valuable devotional objects belonging to the congregation date from this period, some of which can be seen in the Pannonia Reformata Museum in Pápa. The most unique treasure among these objects is the coconut chalice dating from 1646. The dome of the church’s baptismal font preserves the memory of the former wooden church, because it was originally its spire.
