Leaving Győr and the hustle and bustle of the city behind you, and after just 20 kilometres by car, you will feel everything slow down and the excitement of the journey will slowly fade into increasing peacefulness. This feeling only intensifies when you enter Saint Jacob Church in Lébény, where time seems to stand still in its breathtaking silence and tranquillity.
Adventurous past, visitor-friendly present
The 13th century church, built in the Romanesque style of the Árpád era, has an adventurous and fascinating past: ravaged by the Czechs, Turks and Germans, it was beautifully restored in the 19th century. Today, it offers a modern, visitor-friendly environment for pilgrims and travellers seeking tranquillity, with clean toilets, Wi-Fi and multilingual guided tours.
When here, you should also visit the visitor centre, and from there you can explore the area by bike or even organise family and friends’ gatherings. There’s also overnight accommodation, a bakery and a restaurant in the area, so you won’t go hungry or thirsty.
