Ordained in 1999, the Holy Spirit Church of Hévíz can house almost a thousand people, so we might even call it a Basilica. The imposing building mixes Gothic and modern style elements. The locals also call it the blue church. Its seven steeples symbolize the seven gifts from the Holy Spirit (Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Knowledge, Fortitude, Piety, and Fear of the Lord), and from above it reminds of a dove with outstretched wings. The oldest object of this Roman Catholic Church is the more than 150 years old corpus; located at the altar, it was found at an attic by Abbot Bencsik when he was young, and he donated it to the community. The church often serves as a wedding venue, and they also have organ concerts and foreign-language masses.
