The Ancient Village of Hollókő

A few months ago, while we were living in Szombathely, we purchased a painting of a Hungarian village.  Later, we found that the village was named Hollókő, and was located in north-central Hungary.  We visited the village this week after attending the Senior Missionary Conference in Budapest.  Hollókő has the reputation of being very old, and very quaint.  We compared a photo we took with the painting we purchased.Comparing the Painting with a Photo

The day we were in Hollókő they had an infant baptism, and then later in the day the Catholic church celebrated a mass.  This picture shows inside the old church just before the child’s baptism.Inside of the Little Church

There were many well-kept older houses in Hollókő, which has made the village a very popular place to visit.Village House with Roses

Later in the day, we observed several older women (no men) going to the little church for Mass.  And then we saw them walking slowly home on the cobblestone roads.Going to and from Mass

The local castle overlooks Hollókő, and has been partially restored.  It was originally built in the 12th century, and was used then and at later times for the protection of the townspeople.Castle in Background

When the Mongols were raiding in the area, for example, the people would quickly leave their homes and go up to the castle.  The following picture shows the castle on the hill, and the church at the right end of town.Castle (on the hill) and Old Church (on right)
