The Heart of Jesus Chapel Odorheiu Secuiesc


Bazinului, Odorheiu Secuiesc 535600, Romania


The Heart of Jesus Chapel is probably the most famous monument in Odorheiu Secuiesc. The Chapel is situated along the road to Cristuru Secuiesc, on the territory of the former Gyárosfalva village, which merged with Odorheiu Secuiesc in 1571.

The building date of this interesting chapel is questionable, given that there are very few analogies in the area, and its shape differs greatly from the buildings that were certainly built in the 13th century.

The Heart of Jesus Chapel does not have medieval details that could set the date of construction, such as a stone opening frame or some mural painting. The other possible date, according to which the chapel was from the sixteenth century, is also questionable, because the only clue supporting this hypothesis is a coin issued in 1561 by Ferdinand I, Holy Roman Emperor.
