The Cathedral (Konstantin Square) is a historic building. This bishopric church has been the fourth one since the foundation of the bishopcy.

Bishop Eszterházy gave commission to Pilgram, the Austrian architect to plan the cathedral. However, after the foundations were laid down, the cathedral itself was built in French, neo-Classic, late-Baroque style as it was dreamt by Canevale during the bishopcy of Migazzi. The statues of the façade are the works of Joseph Bechert, the master from Vác. The altar-piece shows the Virgin Mary's visit to Saint Elisabeth, called the Visitatio. The fresco on the cupola represents the triumph of the Holy Trinity. Both of them are the works of Maulbertsch. The pieces of the rail of the original cathedral were built into the balustrade choir-rail of the sanctuary. There is a crypt under the church with the same length as the church has. It is divided into three sections and serves as the burial place of bishops, canons and laymen.
