site description

The hermits taking a vow of silence of the Camaldolese order settled in Majkpuszta in the 18th century. The building complex, unique in Europe, lies surrounded by woods and near a lake. The hermitage was erected by Count József Esterházy. The foundations of the church once rising in the centre of the hermitage were laid in 1753. Seventeen austere cell-houses surrounding the church steeple and the one-time monastery turned to the later Esterházy mansion preserve the memory of the hermits who once lived here. The tiny houses standing on an area encircled by wall were built from the donations of aristocratic families whose coat of arms are shown on the main façade of the houses. The furnishings in the rooms of the monastery are faithful representation of the epoch when the hermits lived here. Wandering within the walls radiating unusual tranquillity, visitors can experience the peace of the monks living in silence. Guests may enjoy some fine coffee in the trendy café of the hermitage.
