The Roman-Catholic church in Carei, one of the most representative historical buildings of the town is currently being conserved based on the projects drafted over the last few years, with architect Éva EKE as head of design. An integral part of this project involved the investigation of the numerous artistic stone components of the church elevations, after which conclusions were drawn and the restoration principles established.
