The cemetery chapel
The cemetery chapel with its wooden tower and specially decorated walls is a unique building.  On the front of the chapel, an old stone-built crucifix is guarding the cemetery.

The Baumgartner House
 During the first decades of the 20th century this privately owned house was a gathering place for prominent Hungarian artists. The famous painters Rippl-Ronai, Csok, Aba-Novak and the poet Lorinc Szabo spent time in this house as favored guests of the Baumgartner family. Also physicians and lawyers frequented the house.


During the Kuruc-Labanc War (fought for independence from the House of Hapsburgs) general Janos Bottyan  fought a bloody battle in 1706 in the vicinity of Igal. The battle ended with a labanc victory. According to legend the fallen kuruc soldiers (the freedom fighters) and some local civilian people’s remains are buried under the man-made hill.
