The smallest settlement in the Balaton highlands with 174 residents. The houses of the tiny village are hidden along the brook Pécsely, between white church towers. The remains of Roman buildings found in the neighbourhood are from the 3rd and 4th centuries. The village, deserted as a result of the Turkish devastation, was resettled again with Germans by Grasso, Abbot of Tihany in 1733. The single-aisled, square eneded, late 13th century church in the cemetery in the eastern part of the village has recently been rebuilt. A famous tourist attraction is the watermill, still in operating conditions, the predecessor of which was already documented as early as 1211. Ethnographical and folk art collections are on show in the miller's dwelling house, a listed monument reconstructed in the 18th century. There is a statue of Saint John of Nepomuk on the double-span bridge over the brook Pécsely-patak, another listed monument from the 18th century.
