Geocache Description:


Boldogko Castle

The castle was first mentioned in a certificate, issued by Andrew the III. In the beginning of the 14th century the castle was occupied by Aba Amadé, then it belonged to King Charles of Anjou. During the middle age among others the nobel families Bebek and Czudar possessed the castle.



The enlargement of the castle's walls followed the changing needs of its owners. Ferenc Bebek, thief-knight even minted counterfeit coins, the metal forge of which was later discovered by archeologist.
In the 17th century the castle was no longer an important military base. In the 19th century the nobel family Péchy turned the remaining covered rooms into a grain storage and they made reconstruction works on the walls. The professional restoration works only started in the 1960's, which continued at the beginning of the 21th century. In the course of restoration works of this century the lower courtyard, once protected by wooden pillars and which surrended the place in front of the present stone castle was uncovered.
