  • Priding itself with being one of the oldest historical monuments in Hungary, the Pannonhalma Archabbey (also known as the Territorial Abbey of Pannonhalma, Archiabbatia, or Abbatia Territorialis Sancti Martini in Monte Pannoniae) was founded in 966 near the town of Pannonhalma on top of a large hill. Historians postulate that the renowned Saint Martin of Tours may have been born there, at the foot of the mound itself. It is interesting to know, thus, that the hill is called the Mount of Saint Martin (Márton-hegy). Pertaining to the Order of Saint Benedict, the abbey houses around 50 monks today and includes notable sights such as the Crypt, the Cloisters, the massive Library (which has a collection exceeding 360,000 documents), and the Basilica.
