Petofi Sándor Park

Interesting
This pleasant triangular park is of interest on account of its Baroque Catholic church. Built in 1752 to plans by Vienna-based Italian architect Giovanni Battista Ricca (1691-1757), the concave-fronted building is Romania's largest Baroque church. It was built in 1780 by Austrian Franz Anton Hillebrandt (1719-1797), who was also responsible for the huge bishop's palace, constructed between 1762 and 1777 and known for its 365 windows.
