Nové Zámky Monastery

Nové Zámky, Slovakia

The Franciscan church and monastery in Nové Zámky is an important architectural building built between the years 1626-1631.

The first consecration of the church was done by Cardinal Peter Pazmáň on 24 May 1631. At first it was only a small church with shided roof and with a small monastery. At the beginning of 18th century the monastery was in the hands of Francis II Rákóczi and Mikuláš Bercsényi, who expanded the monastery partially. By the end of 19th century, according to the plans of K. Bálint the next renovation was done. The last complex reconstruction was done between 1978 and the end of the 20th century.

Today the monastery serves as the location of the town museum and as a part of the accommodations for the spiritual order of Franciscan monks.

Holy masses in this church will certainly warm everyone's soul. Franciscan Father Cyrill always comes from Hungary with a good mood and great determination to celebrate Mass in Novy Zamky. He never forgets his stories from his youth in his sermons.

Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls

The Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls was part of the federal sanctuary of the three Gauls dedicated to the cult of Rome and Augustus celebrated by the 60 Gallic tribes when they gathered at Lugdunum (Lyon). The amphitheatre was built at the foot of the La Croix-Rousse hill at what was then the confluence of the Rhône and Saône.

Excavations have revealed a basement of three elliptical walls linked by cross-walls and a channel surrounding the oval central arena. The arena was slightly sloped, with the building"s south part supported by a now-vanished vault. The arena"s dimensions are 67,6m by 42m. This phase of the amphitheatre housed games which accompanied the imperial cult, with its low capacity (1,800 seats) being enough for delegations from the 60 Gallic tribes.

The amphitheatre was expanded at the start of the 2nd century. Two galleries were added around the old amphitheatre, raising its width from 25 metres to 105 metres and its capacity to about 20,000 seats. In so doing it made it a building open to the whole population of Lugdunum and its environs.
