Kisalfold – this is how the restored roof of the Benedictine monastery and church in Győr is being built

The sound of mingling with the chirping of birds, as you look down on Széchenyi Square and the baroque town center in the shimmering sunlight. Walking around the work area our path takes us in one part under new rafters, and in other parts we can still see the sooty, burnt, wet boards in the dark. A labyrinth in the attic of the building complex: 50-60 workers work on the roof every day.

The Benedictines of Győr have four buildings in the city centre, on Széchenyi tér, the church, the gymnasium, the monastery and the former Lloyd’s mansion. The state provides 3 billion HUF for the construction of the roof of the monastery and the church. It will be the 400th anniversary of the founding of the school by the Jesuits, and then the building of a church and a monastery, since the Benedictines took over the complex in 1802, said Simon Robert Balazs, representative of the Gyor Parliament.

Carillon and Museum

Kelemen Sárai-Szabó said that those who come to the center of Győr should not only encounter a closed institution, but also feel the Benedictine openness, go up to the roof and admire the beauty and values ​​of the building. Slope Győr Benedictines said that the building block will be enriched with 380 square meters of exhibition space in the renovated attic of the church and monastery, previously used as an attic. In it, on the one hand, were placed the school objects collected since the 1850s and used for education, on the other hand, the Bell Museum, which houses, among other things, historical bells of the Hungarian National Museum that have not been exhibited before. You will be able to admire the operation of the bell up close, and the process of making the bells will also be introduced. In addition, a 100-square-meter service room with water blocks will be constructed, and the location of the mechanical engineering for the new premises should also be determined.

The deck chair will be completely refurbished

– We started working with the north wing, because we are going to work on a very valuable mural in the church, and until we get there with the plan implemented, we can prepare for any unforeseen problems – Norbert Geiszler, project manager for contractor West Hungária Bau, told Kisalföld. He emphasized that the entire roof structure (the wooden roof structure) would be rebuilt using traditional carpentry techniques, thus omitting the metal screws and using only wood. The rectory’s beams are about 490 years old, and had been left to dry for 90 years, and then the roof of the cloister and church was installed 400 years ago, so the renovation was already in place. The steel floor is insulated against water, and the elevator is also expanded, and it will take you one floor higher than before. He pointed out that they are trying to disrupt the life of the regime and the high school with the least amount of work possible.
