Description of Sumeg Castle

 

Sumeg Castle is located in Sumeg, Veszprém county of Hungary. Castle hill that rises at 885 feet (270 meters) has been inhabited since the Roman times. Roman legions first erected wooden fortress here to defend their empire against raiding Germanic tribes. Sumeg Castle was build here in the 13th century and subsequently almost completely reconstructed in the 16th century. Sumeg citadel is also a museum of Medieval life. Re- enactments of battles and jousts are held here in summer months of the year. Besides here you can find restored fortune chambers with authentic weapons of trade, collection of weapons, couches and other exhibitions. Traditional dances are also held here every year. One of the town’s main attractions is the Roman Catholic Church of Ascension build in 1756- 58 on Biro Maron utca (street). Beautiful frescoes of Austrian Franz Anton Maulbertesch adore walls of the church inside Sumeg Castle.
