Published on September 18th, 2009 | by Admin


Restoration work at the Carmelite monastery in Hungary has turned up a Gothic passageway, a window, as well as some mural paintings in a 17th century dining hall.

The section that links the monastery and a church on a hill was made during restoration work which started in 2007. The work is aimed at a full restoration of the building complex, he said.

Experts have already found mural paintings in a 17th century dining hall, depicting Saint Paul the Hermit, the portraits of four other church leaders, as well as scenes from the day-to-day life of Pauline friars, Balazsik said. An 8.5-metre drain section dating back to the same century has also been found in its original condition, he added.
