It is located 13 kms south of Győr, by the road No. 82. The village is interesting mainly because of its sandy roads, wine cellars and loess roads ('Szurdikok'). The Roman Catholic church at the road No. 82 was built by Maria Theresa. It was built between 1769 and 1775 upon Jakab Fellner's plans in late Baroqe style. According to records, Her Majesty's coach going to Pannonhalma overturned and out of gratitude she ordered to build a new church on the site of the destroyed one in memory of the merciful escape. The furniture, the frescos, the altar-pieces and the pulpit of the unusually large church were made in 1786 upon István Dorfmeister's plans. The memorial tablet of István Domonkos, a parson of the village, acknowledged prose-writer, can be seen on the wall of the parsonage. The statue of Virgin Mary with the child is from 1701. The sandstone canyon valley hollowed by rain is the largest one in Europe. A 600 m long, 20-30 m wide huge groove was formed. This formation is also part of the Landscape Conservation area. There are wine cellars in the sandstone wall near the road. The 150 m long medieval tunnel was hollowed in the hillock in U shape. It can be visited from Monday to Friday from 8 to 14. Its location is ideal for wine growing that is why wine competitions has become traditional in the region. Wandering along the canyon the wine cellars holllowed in the loess wall and the oven in Vaskapu street are great attractions. The Baroque Saint Donát chapel was built in 1710 in memory of the martyr bishop. It was enlarged with a nave in 1800. In 1901 a tower was erected. Its interior is decorated with a nice altar-piece. The picturesque surroundings, the green marked hiking path in the forest, the ski track (with lift in winter) in Berek offer excellent possibilities for visitors.
