Wesselényi castle was built in locality's centre. Beside the gate we see on high tresltles two vases made in late baroque style. Castle's entrance is through a porch with arches hold by 4 pillars. Above the door are the families' symbols Wesseléntyi, Bethlen, united in an angel's hands. On both door's sides we see Rocco style frame inscriptions. In right are annex buildings which delimits an interior yard. Two opposite wings have arches and sheltered servants' houses and the back building the stud.

Castle construction began in 1761. Wesselényi Ferenc and Rhédey Zsuzsanna gave the work to Bavarey constructor Josef Litrmant. After Wesselényi Ferenc death in 1770 works were continued by his son Farkas and his wife Bethlen Júlia.

After contructors and craftsmen many times changed, the work was finished in 1766 once with yard's pavement. The double symbol of The Wesselényis and inscriptions were made by Anton Schuchbauer.

For some years after nationalization castle was City Hall headquarters, after 1989 was retroceded to The Bánffys' heirs and now are some classroms. The castle was bought by a Hungarian entrepreneur.
