The church ruins of Töttöskál

This Roman style church was built in the 12th-13th century, and it was the church of the medieval settlement of Töttöskál. This village, inhabited by royal courtiers, had been mentioned in 1296 for the first time. The shrine of the church closes directly, from among the slit-windows only one on the south side has remained. In 1530 the Turks destroyed both the village and the church, but later it was rebuilt and used even until the 19th century. In 1876 it was described again as ruins. The ruins have remained in good shape and the view from here on the Káli Basin and  the surrounding southern hills is wonderful.
