Carmelite church information

Lonely Planet review

The baroque 'Viennese Gate Sq' is dominated to the south by the Carmelite church built in 1725. On the north and northwest side of the square and cutting it off from the river are the fortifications built in the 16th century to stop the Turkish onslaught, and a bastion that has served as a prison, a chapel, a shop and, until recently, even a restaurant.
