Bodrogolaszi Church

Bodrogolaszi, Hungary

Bodrogolaszi Church with a round-arched apse was built on a hill in the 12th century. Its hole windows justify that besides the religious function, the church was also of strategic importance. The church was originally designated for the Walloons, immigrants occupied with vine-culture in the Tokaj-Hegyalja region. The church was reconstructed several times: in the end of the 18th century, in the second half of the 19th century and the end of the 1970s. The latter was the biggest reconstruction, when the building gained its finals shape.

Thank you for the guarantor entry to the balcony of the tower Samuel! ? To get the key, you can ask the wine shop on the street opposite the tower ... in front of the market.

Nice, uniform 12th-century building - with remnants of architectural decoration in places - in the wedge part of the village on the banks of the Bodrog.

A place for camping by the river. Benches and a place for bonfires. Peace and quiet. Always an angler.

At the bank of the river bank, the parish church of the former Walloon settlement, the parish church raised in honor of St. Nicholas, stands out over the leader of the Bodrog Center, which has been used for centuries. The settlement was first mentioned in 1244, when IV, Béla installed Italian vineyards here, but it is mentioned in the church in 1201. The bell in the tower was poured in 1904. The caretaker of the church is very willing, its contact with the church can be found.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
