It is a most peculiar structure, a real curiosity of the city. The special architectural feature of the castle is that it is made of concrete. The 20th century knights’ castle was constructed by architect and sculptor Jenő Bory over a period of 36 years as a symbol of his eternal love for his wife. In 1923, the architect and sculptor Jenő Bory started to build a castle on an artificial hill in the suburb of Öreghegy, still rural and covered with vineyards in the interwar period. He built the rambling castle in the historicist style for his wife, the painter Ilona Komocsin (1885-1974).
