Gellért Monument: This is Bishop Gellért Sagredo, known for his mission to spread Christianity throughout Hungary. After the first Christian king of Hungary Saint Stephen’s death, legend has it that the rebelling pagan Magyars sealed Gellért up in a barrel and sent him rolling down the side of the hill to his death.
