The first stone building in the city is the Reformed Church. It was made in the 14th or 15th century in Gothic style. The original church can be deduced from a map made by Deák Lázár before the disaster in Mohács, but published only in 1528: this church is depicted as a fortified, bastion-surrounded, gabled tower with a parapet. Your church fortress also served to protect the population. A charter from 1461 also refers to this when he names the church as “vici Chastel”, that is, as a forecourt, a castle-like structure. In 1596 , the Crimean Tatars , allied with the Turks, wreaked havoc in the areadestroyed. It was rebuilt around 1621. A wooden belfry was erected in place of the collapsed tower. The current Baroque form of the church was given between 1856 and 1887. A document, a bottle of wine, and a copy of the money in circulation were placed under the pedestal of the new tower. Renovations in 1975 revealed the remains of a Gothic building, the entrance to a walled sacristy from the street, and the window sills on the south side. It was then that the mason’s guild badge that built the church also appeared. The building stone of the church, the volcanic tuff, was transported from the Tokaj area on the Tisza ship. The cinterem, the cemetery on the south side, belonged to the church. The Csegians were buried here until 1787. According to a custom dating back to pre-Christian times, the tombs were oriented east. In the summer of 2004, the exterior of the church was completely renovated, during the time of Pastor Barna Mészáros and caretaker Sándor Fülöp.
