Traditional folk architecture is still kept alive in the village, so after visiting the Manor it is well worth taking a short walk among the beautifully renovated dwelling houses. The Káli Basin with its numerous geological, botanical, cultural assets – especially the Hegyestű Geological Interpretive Site, the “seas of stones” and the ruins of a cloister situated south of Salföld, in a forest – can be discovered on foot, by bicycle, on horseback or with horse-driven coaches.
