Gellért Hill Cave

Local nameMagyarok Nagyasszonya Sziklatemplom
LocationÚjbuda, Budapest, Hungary

The Gellért Hill Cave is part of a network of caves within Gellért Hill in Budapest, Hungary. The cave is also referred to as "Saint Ivan's Cave", regarding a hermit who lived there and is believed to have used the natural thermal water of a muddy lake next to the cave to heal the sick. It is likely that this same water fed the pools of the old Sáros fürdő, now called Gellért Baths.In the 19th century the cave was inhabited by a poor family who built a small house of sun dried bricks in the great opening.
