Chateau Overview

Historical Splendor

The castle assumed its present form under the supervision of architect Jakab Mayer. The construction began with the chapel, which was completed in 1780. Château Bela was acquired by local merchant Pál Sherdahelyi during that period. In the same year, the castle chapel was consecrated. It continues to serve as the local church, hosting weddings. The castle, built in the French Baroque style, was completed in 1874. The 18th-century manor house was thoughtfully reclaimed and revived by the late Countess Ilona von Krockow in the early 2000s. Today, it stands as a haven of peace and relaxation, inviting you to lose yourself in time within its timeless embrace.
