The Sükösd-Bethlen Castle

Castle / Tourist attraction - Racoș


Racoș 507175, Romania


Now located at the intersection of two streets of the locality, the castle is remarkable by its still imposing architecture, specific for the late Renaissance .

The castle has a rectangular planimetry with long sides to the south and north and corners with circular towers on top. The entrance was placed to the middle of the southern part, under the protection of a rectangular tower which dominates the entire complex.

The circular tower from the left and right of the entrances were doubled by rhombus-like strongholds, with an far outwards pushed shaft, which are now much lower than the other components.

The interiors still hold traces of old decorations (arch supports, fragments of stone and stucco profiles, wooden windows with Renaissance features and al secco paintings).

The arrangement of the kitchen flue that occupies the entire interior and the roof of the round, southwestern tower is impressive.
