Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange!
The orangey roofs of the Roman Catholic Matthias Church in Budapest are a landmark of Hungary’s capital.
Matthias Church is situated in the famous Buda Castle District, and as such part of a World Heritage Site. The church was constructed in the 13th/14th century, but thoroughly restored in the 19th century. Its predominent style is Neo-Gothic.
The mostly orange-coloured roof tiles were added to the church during the restoration in the 19th century.
Unfortunately, the church was under restoration during my visit. So I don’t have any photos of the church as a whole without this annoying building site.
At least, the orange colour of the dredge and the fences demonstrate an exquisite sense of taste.
