Matthias Church (Hungarian: Mátyás-templom) is a Roman Catholic Church located in Budapest, Hungary, in front of The Fisherman's Bastion, at the heart of Buda's Castle District. According to Church Tradition, it was originally built in Romanesque style in 1015, although no archaeological remains exist.

The current building was constructed in the florid Late-Gothic Style, in the second- half of the 14th-Century, and was extensively restored in the Late-19th-Century. It was the second-largest Church of Mediaeval Buda and the seventh-largest Church of the Mediaeval Hungarian Kingdom.
