The St. Martin´s Cathedral

The centre of the Spis Chapter House is the cathedral consecrated to the bishop St. Martin. The Romanesque building was built in the 13th century as a result of an important building activity in this area. From the Romanesque part of the cathedral only the three-aisle part remained, originally with the middle part twice as high, with the adjacent empora with two towers arising. This is how the characteristic west double-tower facade with richly profiled portal emerged. Extension of Zapolsky´s chapel in 1488-1493 to the south aisle and extension of two sacristies were important building adjustments. Purist re-gothisation affected the decoration of the interior in the 19th century. The cathedral and its interior are architectural masterpieces.

Opening hours: Monday – Saturday 10:00 – 17:00, Sunday 13:00 - 17:00
