Medieval Bastion - Mace Tower of Buda Castle Hungary

Medieval Bastion -  Mace Tower of Buda Castle Hungary by Dora Hathazi Mendes.


The Buda Castle in Hungarian called Budavari Palota, is a beautiful historical palace and castle complex of the Kings of Hungary in Budapest, which was built on the southern tip of the Castle Hill. Also known as the Castle District Varnegyed, which is famous for its Medieval, Baroque, and 19th-century houses, churches, and public buildings. After the invasion of the Tatars, the first fortified town was built in the 13th century by Bela VI, later was enlarged with new palaces by King Sigismund, then in the second half of the 15th century King Matthias had the Gothic Palace rebuild in late gothic, and renaissance style. The Complex through its long history, for instance was occupied by Turks, destroyed and burned down in World War II., was rebuilt several times, and finally turned into a cultural centre after the war.


Medieval Bastion - Mace Tower of Buda Castle Hungary by Dora Hathazi Mendes


The Mace Tower in Hungarian Buzogany Torony, stands next to the Great Rondella, at the South end of the Buda Castle. It is part of the Medieval Remnants, in a courtyard of the former medieval castle.  A cylindrical, thin, slender Tower, with a completely vertical wall, has on the top a "mace" roof with wooden shingle and a covered small terrace header. The Tower was built around the XV. century, during the reign of King Sigismund.

My painting is a stylised style composition of the Tower with the stairs and street lights elegantly leading to the entrance of the Bastion, beautifully surrounded with painted frame, together composed with unique contrasts of colours.  

The bright coloured Medieval Bastion painting is available as high quality prints (acrylics, canvas, wood, metal, framed, etc. ) plus related products from The Eye of a Traveller Collection of the Official Website of Dora Hathazi Mendes .
