The Castle of Markaz

From the ruins of the Markaz castle the view is really breathtaking for which it is worth climbing.

The ruins of the former castle at the end of Vár crag lie about 2 km way from Markaz alongside the green L symbol. It is assumed that the Kompolti family that belonged to the Aba genus had it built in the 1270-1280’s. The castle did not have significance from a military point of view as it was mainly used for recreation and hunting by the owners. The palace was constructed in the tiny and narrow castle with a tiny yard. On the southeast side of the rectangular castle the 6-metre wall still exists. The castle is believed to have been demolished during the Turkish occupation. There is a spectacular view from the castle to the north to the castle valley and Abasár why it is worth climbing.
