||2890 Tata, Hősök tere
Miklós Esterházy (1711-1765), commander of the Hungarian Bodyguards, was granted the estate of Tata and Gesztes in 1762. It was in the same year that he commissioned Jakab Fellner to make the designs of his residence in Tata.
The late baroque mansion overlooking Öreg-tó is a unique sight owing to its architectural values, ornamental internal spaces, and an 18th-century sentimental garden and landscape garden.
On the west side of the mansion’s main building topped by corner towers there is a single-storey small mansion, which used to serve as a guest house. The residence is complete with rows of annexes surrounding the central edifice. Further valuable parts of this historical monument are the coach house and the stables, both accessible from the inner courtyard.
