The synagogue of Mád
The town’s synagogue was built in 1785 and counts as one of the oldest in Hungary. Families of wine merchants and wine makers built it and although it went through several reconstructions, today it stands in its finest light thanks to the work of the Jewish Heritage Grant program of the New York World Monuments Fund.
Roman catholic church
Mád’s Roman Catholic church was built int 1525-526, originally as a guarding tower. According to the year engraved above the entrance it was probably dedicated in the honor of the Holy Trinity in 1653.
The protestant church of Mád was built in the early 1800’s and was burnt down several times. Its latest reconstruction happened in the 1980’s when it was given a new frontage and a tower, and also re-painted. The tower of the 400-seat historic church is 28 m high with two bells inside.
The Rákóczi-Aspremont castle in the main street of Mád was probably built up in the 16th-17th century. Through the centuries it operated as a farm building, as a mansion of aristocracy and today it gives home to the Barta cellar which renovated the building. The castle of the Rákóczi family now shines just like in the old times.
