in Vál:   Hotel

A village with 2,341 inhabitants north-east of the Velence Mountains, the valley of Váli water was named after the village. An earthwork from the late Bronze age - the so called 'Pagan castle' - and a Celtic village were uncovered. Graves from the Avar age were found in the sand-pit. The village was first mentioned in records in 1166. The Louis XVI. style mansion in the centre of the village was built by József Ürményi, Lord Chief Justice, in the 1770s. It was also him who built the neo-Classical Roman Catholic church between 1819 and 1824. This is the largest and most beautiful neo-Classical church in Fejér county. József Ürményi's marble statue (made by István Ferenczy) was placed here. Some objects of the ancient church can be found here: the tabernacle, two angel statues made of wood and a statue of Saint John of Nepomuk. One of the ornaments of the church is the painting of the Holy Family, which was made in Rafaello's school. The neo-Classical Ürményi mausoleum in the cemetery is from 1834. János Vajda, poet, spent his childhood in the hunting lodge near the village. A Museum of the Fire Brigade has been opened recently.
