The Gisella Chapel next to the Archbishop’s Palace is said to have been founded by Blessed Gisella, the wife of St Stephen, our first apostolic king. Today’s Gothic building, which dates back to the 18th century, was almost completely destroyed in the Turkish period. The interior is one of the oldest in Hungary, making the chapel one of the most important sights of Veszprém.
Not only the keystones of the vaults are exceptionally rare and old but also the frescoes of the apostles decorating the walls since the 13th century. The chapel can be divided into three units: two squarish rectangular and a square-shaped chancels. The Chapel was renovated in the 1930s and the inscription visible on the altar “The faith of our ancestors, the hope of the future” was born at that time.
