The first mention of the settlement in Kemenesalja Region is from 1311.
Its medieval church is dedicated to the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Its furnishings are Baroque.
The Berzsenyi family's mansion was built in art nouveau style in 1905. It has been recently restored and today is uninhabited, and for sale. One of the pleasant wine cellars in the vineyard was poet Dániel Berzsenyi's favourite retreat.
In feudal times a considerable number of yeomen lived here. Some of their residences can still be seen.
