Roman Catholic Church, Tornaszentandrás
An interconnecting road that starts from Komjáti (a settlement beside the motorway to Slovakia) takes us to Tornabarakony, via Tornaszentandrás. From other directions the village can be approached only by a longish walk of several kilometers. There is a road-sign indicating that we are driving on a Gothic road. At the end of the seven-kilometer long drive, leaving behind a forest, we arrive to a small village with an exceptional landscape. The road looks rather like a long umbilical cord at the end of which there is a quiet and peaceful out-of-the world place. There is no trace of any traffic, only a few elderly people look in our direction with no particular interest. They have got work to do: living their everyday lives, carrying out their work in a leisurely pace. And there is silence!
