Capuchins

Little bit of history

Marco d'Aviano (1631-1699) was an Italian capuchin monk, a minister of the camp who had great merit in organizing an anti-Turkish liberation campaign. His activities made the capuchin order popular and famous in Hungary. Some people believed that, after Turkish occupation the consolidation of our country and the rise of poor people could be enormous factors in the reconstruction of Hungary. This is the way how György Széchényi (1605 / 1606-1695) Archbishop of Esztergom could think, who requested captains from the Pope to donate the capuchin order to found the Buda capuchin monastery in which right now our Hotel is situated.
