The Benedictine abbey of Szekszárd was founded in 1061 by the famous I. Bela. The cross-shaped church was intended for the burying-place of the royal family. The tradition holds that I. Bela was buried here in 1063, but the royal tomb has not been found. The first writing is from 1212, which certifies the authenticity function of the abbey. After the Mongol invasion a castle was built around the abbey's building. In the 14th century a monastery school worked in it. Abbot Michael Merey took over the building of the abbey after the Turks , who managed a Christian church there. This condition lasted until 1794, but a terrible fire destroyed the church. The ruins were carried away in 1802 to build the new church and the estate buildings of the abbey were bought by the county to build the County Hall.
