St Anna Chapel, historic building of the belfry and carved tomb-stones in the cemetery


The Calvary

kalvaria_02The Calvary was built in 1825-26 in classicist style; the lower part is the St Anna Chapel.
It stands on top of a hill. The round building was erected in 1825 by the widow of Bonaventúra Szentiványi, Apollónia Szirmai and was consecrated in 1826 with a patronal festival (of St Jacob).

There is a pillar on each side of the door; above it there is a tympanon-like gable end with an arched top.

The Chapel

The inner area of the chapel is rounded; its arched ceiling holds the Calvary. Bent staircase leads to the top from both sides. A banister runs along the stairs and around on the top made from carved stones.

kalvaria_06There is a crucifix on the top, with the statues of Mary and John made by Dunaiszky Lőrinc, a famous sculptor of those days.

The belfry was built in the 19th century. Close to it are the remains of walls that are considered to be remains of a palos monks' church and monastery.

The tombstones

There are several carved tombstones from the 19th century.

1.: Heart-shaped stone with round-ended cross. The engravings are from 1827, are in Hungarian but are quite illegible.

2.: Heart-shaped stone with round-ended cross, with engravings in Latin.

3.: Another stone with a larger cross; engravings are in Hungarian but quite illegible.

4.: Similar to the previous one with illegible engravings; used to be on the side of the road leading to the Calvary.

5.: Heart-shaped stone with round-ended cross. Tomb stone of Annae Blasko from 1825.

6.: Tomb-stone with small columns on each side, holding a tympanon-like gable end and a simple cross. Tombstone of János (John) Gyetmári from 1851.

7.: Carved tomb stone with a cross.

8.: Simple stone with a smaller cross. Was the tomb stone of Erzsébet Varga from 1844.

Several old tomb-stones - that tumbled over, were demolished, or were replaced with an intent of saving them and then some included in the above list - were re-erected alongside the road from the entrance to the Calvary vicar András Láng and sculptor András Laluja.
