Fó Street

Fó Street (19)

Fó Street is the main thoroughfare of the city and crosses the neighbourhood of Víziváros, running parallel to the river Danube. The street dates back to Roman times and is home to some superb architectural jewels. One of these is the ´Church of the Capuchins`, which was used as a mosque during the Ottoman occupation, and still contains the remains of two windows and doors with Islamic style arches. 

In the middle of the 19th Century the first of the city’s palaces were built in this street, the backs of which are located here, while their fronts give out onto the quayside. 

The most attractive buildings in Fó Street can be found in ´Corvino Square`. Here, at numbers 3, 4 and 5 are located some lovely bourgeois houses from the end of the 18th century, as well as the ´Louis Fountain`. What’s more, if you pay attention you will see the Buda Concert Hall on the northern side of the square. 

If you carry on to number 20 on the same street, you will find the medieval ´Kapisztory House` and close by the famous pastry shop known for its furniture, which has been serving the public since 1850.
