The area of ​​the castle used to be part of the Tata-Gesztes estate, which became the property of the Esterházy family in 1727. The idea of building the castle came from Count Miklós Esterházy II, who originally envisioned his new palace on the site of the then-ruined castle.The castle was built up in the 1770s under the leadership of Ferenc Esterházy IV, based on the plans of Jakab Fellner. Today, in the castle there is a permanent exhibition called ” Island of Peace”, which shows the life and international importance of the Esterházy family through the baroque interiors of the time.
