Geocache Description:

The cache is dedicated to the castle ruins of Fuzer. It is hidden in near forrest outside the ruins.

The Castle Ruins

The castle

The castle was built on top of a distinctive volcanic cone in the 13th century.
Its partial reconstruction has been underway for around a decade. Now you can see as the castle looked in the 17th century as rooms have been partly reconstructed and their outlines marked. The remaining sections of the husbandry wing have been conserved and currently the north, northwestern parts of the keep's cellar are under reconstruction.

Over the centuries the fort belonged to the royal estates on several occasions. At the time of the Turkish wars crown guard Péter Perényi had the Holy Crown brought to Füzér in 1526. The castle suffered a severe damage in 1683 when it was blasted by Austrian imperial forces.
