Misefa is a small village in the Zala Hills of Hungary. It is located 15 km from Keszthely and 30 km from Zalaegerszeg.

History[edit]

Misefa was first mentioned in documents as Myxefolva (in 1352), but it has existed since the 13th century. According to a local legend the name (from "mise", meaning mass, and "fa", meaning tree) originates from the fact that the village didn't have a church and masses were held under the branches of a walnut tree.
