The fisherman's bastion was erected in 1899-1905 according to the project of the architect Fridies Shulek and was conceived as an architectural background for the Matthias Church. Despite its name, the Fisherman's Bastion never had a defensive significance. Previously, on the site of the Fisherman's Bastion, there was an area surrounded by a fortress wall where fish trade was taking place. In the Middle Ages, Buda fishermen defended this section of the fortress wall in the event of a military threat, and the Fisherman's Bastion became a monument to the brave guild of fishermen.
