Sites to visit in the village include the... tovább collection of local history with permanent exhibitions of the artefacts of the Laposhalom excavation and a display of the Tószeg pottery tradition. The Reformed church built in 1730 and the somewhat younger Roman Catholic church, are also worth a visit. A statue to Kossuth Lajos stands in front of the primary school building and a World War II Memorial was erected at the northern gate of the village.
