Corner tower of the baroque castle in the small village of Magyarbél (Veľký Biel) in today’s southern Slovakia.
Village was founded in the Hungarian Kingdom around 1294 and its name was Beel, later Magyarbél.
In 1719 the Hungarian nobble Zsigmond Csáky started building the largest baroque castle in the area and its upkeep was in charge of his brother, archbishop Imre Csáky.
Some interesting facts: number of windows is 365, just like days in a year, 52 rooms, just like weeks in a year and 7 gates.
