Tarcal



 

Tarcal is located in the northeastern part of Hungary, in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, near the town of Tokaj . Famous for its grape- and wine-production, Tarcal was incorporated as part of the Tokaj-Hegyalja wine producing area, into the UNESCO’s Tokaj Wine Region Historic Cultural Landscape, in 2002.

The baroque style Rákóczi wine-shop dates from the second half of the 18th century; it was reconstructed during the course of the 19th century. The building, which is still used for vinicultural purposes, serves as the entrance to the Rákóczi-Cellar.

The Andrássy Country-Mansion was also built in the second half of the 18th century, originally in the baroque style, with later Classicist style modifications. The building which is at present privately owned, will, following renovations, cater for the hospitality industry, functioning as a hotel.

The former royal mansion and wine-shop, to be found in the Terézia-field, was erected in the 19th century, in an eclectic style. At present the building functions as the Tokay Business-House.

The former school for vine-dressers, built at the end of the 19th century, has been converted to a hotel.

Also worthy of mention is the Roman-Catholic church, which was originally built in the Gothic style in the 15th century, then rebuilt in the baroque style in the 18th century.
