The proud, towering medieval castle is one of the most valuable and best-known monuments in Gömör County. The castle's story begins around 1320 when the Bebek Family rebuilt and enlarged the fort raised earlier by the Máriássy Family. The Bebeks also introduced a new defense system. The castle later came into the possession of the Andrássy Family, who transformed the former castle into a residence. The last lord of the castle - Count Dénes Andrássy, converted the castle into a public museum in 1906. The extensive collections and exhibits include the original equipment rooms, castle kitchen, banquet halls, a chapel and a gun collection.
 
Unfortunately, the castle suffered a catastrophic fire on March 10, 2012. Repairs are underway; however, it is unlikely that the site will be reopened for visitors before 2015.
