• In the period following the Mongol invasion, the region of Vécs (Brâncovenești) went to the Tomaj family and later to the descending Losonci family. According to the documents of the time, the property already belonged to them in 1319. The ancestors of the Losonci Bánffy family inherited it and they were rulers for one century and a half.

  • The castle has a U-shaped layout, and was constructed in a neo classicist style. It has two corner risalits at its main facade; the northern risalit has an upper floor, thus conferring to it the aspect of a corner tower.

  • Keresztúri Kristóf, the councilor of Báthory István ruler, raised a renaissance building in addition to the old medieval castle. The Kornis family became the owner of the castle in 1602 when Kornis Boldizsár, a captain from Covasna County married Keresztúri Kata, the daughter of Keresztúri Kristóf.

  • This is the place where Petőfi Sándor, who is believed to have died a hero's death during the battle of Fehéregyház (Albești), in the company of Zeyk Domokos and together with General Bem, has spent his night of 30 to 31 July 1849, being the guest of the owner of the house from that time, Varga Zsigmond.

  • The castle was built in 1629 on the place of the old manor-house that had become uninhabitable when Mihály voivode marched in. The manor-house consisting of three rooms that have basements as well, a kitchen and a chamber that preserved its structure until the end of the 17th century, and a the secondly settled door-case with fretwork in the brick-vaulted cellar comes as well from this century.

  • After nationalization, the building was used by the Ministry of Agriculture as an experimental station of breeding, therefore the manor stands in a relatively good condition, not as the outbuildings which are in a very poor condition, having their roofs caved in. The building and the dendrological park was not reclaimed by anyone.

  • The construction of the castle was commissioned by Zichy Domokos, bishop of Roznyó (Rožňava in Slovakian), later of Veszprém, and was finished in 1860. This was after he was struck by the grief of losing his brother Ödön (1809-1848), who was executed for treason. After the circumstances of the political scene forced him to renounce his position, he moved to Transylvania. He died in 1879. The castle has remained in good conditions to this day. 

  • In the second half of the 18th century, the family then commissioned the construction of a baroque castle in the old building’s stead. This castle was a two-storey building with a rectangular layout and a baroque facade.
