Watertown Church, Esztergom

The Church of St. Ignatius, known locally as the "two-tower church" or "Watertown church", was built by the Jesuits between 1728 and 1738. In 1788 it became a parish church and from 1820 to 1856 it functioned as a temporary cathedral. The original church, which did not have a tower because it was strategically forbidden to build towers near the castle, received its two towers in the 19th century.
