Kapisztrán tér (Capistrano Square)
Kapisztrán tér (Capistrano Square) Review
Castle Hill's northernmost square was named after St. John of Capistrano, an Italian friar who in 1456 recruited a crusading army to fight the Turks who were threatening Hungary. There's a statue of this honored Franciscan on the northwest corner; also here are the Museum of Military History and the remains of the 12th-century Gothic Mária Magdolna templom (Church of St. Mary Magdalene). Its torony (tower), completed in 1496, is the only part left standing; the rest of the church was destroyed by air raids during World War II.
