The Bárczy Manor House is a Late Renaissance manor house built during the second half of 17th century on a Gothic base.

It has preserved Renaissance arches and other original features. The manor house was built by the Radvanský family; it was their second manor house.

The manor house was also referred to as the upper one because it was a bit higher than the first one. In 1917, the manor house was taken over by doctor Emil Bárczy.

Bárczy Manor has been dilapidating for years and is in critical condition.
