The Ruined Tower

There used to be three churches in Kisszentgrót, the civil town of Zalaszentgrót, which shows the importance of it.
From these three churches only one is still standing, however, it is quite ruined as well. We do not know too much about the church that used to have a monestry. There have been only some suppositions that it belonged to the Churchers . The monks left the building since it could not be protected in the Turkish times, and it started to ruin. According to some sources its two towers, walls and arches were still standing at the end of the 1800s, but Batthyány Ferenc had it demolished in order to build a lord yard in the place of it. However, one of the towers was not pulled down as a result of the inhabitants wish and it functioned as a bell-tower.
