Hess András tér

Name: Hess András tér
Category: Architecture, castles and historic districts
Location: 1014 Budapest, Hess András tér.


This square is named after the first printer to set up here in 1483. He published Buda’s chronicals, the first book to be written in Hungarian. The statue in the centre is Pope Innocent XI who played a very important role during the war against the Turks. Behind the statue, you can see an old house called the “red hedgehog” house due to the tiny animal over the door. Note the beautiful yellow façade of the building that houses the Fortuna restaurant.
