Sights of the village[edit]

Northwest of the village is the "Red" manor-house, which is protected as an art memorial. It was named after its red-tiled roof. The oldest part of the building is the arched hall at the first ground, probably built around 1780. Its original function was possibly a cattle or sheep barn.

Its first owner was the Teleky family, and later the Zeyk family.

In the 1990s the building was totally destroyed. The restoration was completed in 2000. However, the style is different from the original.
