The Church and the Hospital of the Hospitaller Brothers of St. John of God, Pecs

The Church and the Hospital of the Hospitaller Brothers of St. John of God was constructed in 1727 by the Capuchin friars. The monastery was built later near the main church in 1731. The statue of the Virgin Mary by György Kis enriches the building. The altar with inlays describes the martyrdom of St. Sebastian in Italian Baroque art. Visitors to the church can find a beautiful square chapel on the western side of the church. In 1744 fire destroyed the wooden parts of the monastery. Later in 1796 a tanner from Pecs created a foundation for the creation of the Hospitaller hospital there. Then in the years 1940 and 1941 it was rebuilt using some parts from the old hospital building.
