Fishermen's Bastion Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

This set of ramparts and turrets (finished in 1906) calls to mind a castle right out of a fairytale. The seven turrets symbolise the seven Magyar tribes and each tribal leader is represented by a statue. The bastion offers the visitor beautiful views over the Danube and Pest. The statue of Saint Stephen, the first king of Hungary, stands in front of the bastion. Note the attributes given to the four evangelists: Matthew, the man, Luke, the ox, John, the eagle and Mark, the lion.
