The abbey was founded in 996 by Prince Géza as the first Benedictine monastery in Hungary and the Hungarian center of the Benedictine order. However, the highlight of the sightseeing is the library with the classicist hall, there are more than 400,000 books and manuscripts. In addition to the historic cloister, the valuable library and the magnificent basilica, there is also a beautiful medicinal herb garden and the exquisitely equipped wine cellar to visit. From the square in front of the church you have a great view of the surrounding countryside. The Archabbey of Pannonhalma is still inhabited and run by Benedictines. Since 1996 the abbey has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
