    The premontrean order arrived in Zsámbék 100 years later and possessed the monastery built in honour of St John the Baptist till 1475. Its founder, knight Aynard had his masonry castle here the ruins of which were used as the foundations for the Baroque-style mansion which was turned into the new home for the nunnery of the order. White sisters have been teaching in the village as well as in the castle since 1990. The second stage of the remodelling was managed by Zoltán Kovács, the task being to redesign the partly existing wing embracing almost entirely the courtyard with its three storeys at parts almost life-dangerous. Design deserves special attention as they did not choose „newpaperarchitecture”, and of course they are also talented: the project is proof of a thoughtful and considerate architect, with systematic decision-making strategies, respecting the past not only based on the official values matched with an attitude to design regarding the falsification of values as unacceptable.
