The village was first mentioned at the end of the 13th century, several times under the name Ábrahámlaskoda in the early period, named after its landowner, Ábrahám. Its church stood there already in the first half of the 14th century, and it was restored in the mid-1990s. The murals decorating the interior were discovered at this time. Fragments from the legend of Saint Ladislaus can be seen in the lower register of the southern wall of the church: the scenes depicting the chase (only the figure of the Cuman can be seen here), the wrestling (the fight between St. Ladislaus and the Cuman) and the beheading can be identified.
We invite you to visit Transylvania and Hungary, to discover everything that we still cherish from Saint Ladislaus’s cult. Plan your route here.
Saint Ladislaus’ memory is still alive in the Hungarian culture: the knight king is present in our legends, he is the hero of our tales and the central figure of many pilgrimages. We invite you to visit the 44 locations in Transylvania and Hungary, to discover everything that we still cherish from the king’s cult: the built heritage, locations connected to the Saint Ladislaus legends and the beautiful natural landmarks. The project is an ongoing one: our goal is to connect the Hungarians who live in the Carpathian Basin with a cultural tour, presenting the heritage of Saint Ladislaus.
