Füzér Castle Ruins

Füzér, Hungary

The ruins of Füzér Castle stand on a solitary rock cone at the edge of the village. It was built by the designs of 'Blind' Anoronicus at the beginning of the 13th century and expanded in the 14th and 15th centuries. The castle was ruined at the end of the 18th century. Its architectural characteristics include stone remains in lace form. The entire castle hill is a protected historic site with protected plants and animals. The reconstruction of the castle has only lately begun in earnest. A significant part of the castle walls are standing, the most in tact is its beautiful, two-store Gothic chapel and renewed shingle roof structure. The renewed casle chapel was inaugurated in 2002.

From the car park under the Castle Hill, it is a comfortable 15-minute walk up to the castle gate. From here, a steep, rocky path with steps and a wooden path leads to the castle. With resting places. It is advisable to wear comfortable shoes. The castle is beautifully restored with information and thematic exhibitions in every part. Beautiful views. Very beautiful and well worth a visit.

Easy to walk to the top, Castle is very well renovated and up to 2021 standars. They speak English,Hungarian,Spanish and German. Also every room has the displays written in these languages also. A bit pricey to enter, but worth the view and experience

We arrived just in time for the guided tour. The guide was very prepared and was happy to answer all of our questions. She even let us to stay a bit longer than the official opening times. The renovation looked nice and they tried to recreate the original 18th century look by using the detailed inventory letters and books from that time

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
