It was already my third attempt to visit this Romanian castle, the first two attempts failed.

The precise date of the 18th century castle’s construction isn't known. Baron György Bánffy (1739–1805) and his wife, Zsuzsanna Wesselényi (1743–1800), lived here during the second half of the 18th century. But the family lived on this land even before the existence of the castle, as they used to own a summer residence here. The estate used to have a lake and a columbarium fashioned in the Japanese style, but they don’t exist anymore. Between 1752 and 1755 the guest house and the stable were restored. Between the years 1847 and 1887, the castle was owned by Adam Banffy, a patron of the arts, and later on, by his son, Albert Banffy. The latter resided here until 1945 when the building was nationalized. From 1967 the castle was used as a school, which was closed in 2007. Since then the castle has been abandoned.
