Roman Catholic Temple built on top of Ali Pasa Mosque,

Note the Turkish style windows in this Szigetvar abnormality,

Todays entrance to Zrinyi Castle, which was once called Island Castle,

What the castle looked like when it was stormed by the Turks, today only the back 2 sections remain (but as one castle & with only 5% original wall,

The spot where the bridge connected the Inner Castle (with tower) to the back section of castle, Zrinyi Miklos & his men died around this area (with the 3 spikes) when they charged out of their last defense into the Turkish Army, out numbered 24 to 1.
