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


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.
