The ruined castle stands on the elevation of the river-flat. Its four corners are fortified by polygonal towers with arrow slits. The walls of the castle stand tall, but the roofing and interior walls have completely collapsed. The central building was once surrounded by a quadratic exterior wall at thirty meters distance. This wall was fortified by four diamond-shaped corner towers with arrow slits. These exterior walls have since disappeared and only the ruins of the two southern corner towers remain.
The two-storey building has embrasures on the ground floor and renaissance windows on the first floor. It is thus very representative of 16th century aristocratic residencies, as it has essential defensive installations as well as selective and comfortable living conditions. The wide windows, the well-heated rooms with tile stoves, and the renaissance paintings on the walls were all signs of the aristocratic family’s wealth.
The castle has a U-shaped layout, two floors, and a main facade facing the street. An accentuated string-course separates the two floors, the windows are framed: the ones on the ground floor are jack arched and cantilevered, and have eyebrow lintels with segmented arches and keystones, while the ones on the upper floor are jack arched, have cantilevered window sills and decorated jack arched lintels.
Remaining empty, the Biális Manor became the property of the locality and possibly by satisfying the heirs, it became the Village Hall. During the two World Wars it housed the military locker rooms. Today, the building functions as a post office and the institution of the common ownership. The local government plans to renovate the building.
The previous version of today’s castle was originally built as a hunting lodge in late renaissance style by Rákoczi György I. In 1662 it even hosted the Transylvanian Congress. It was later deserted for several decades. The castle’s new owner, Bornemissza Gergely, made use of the already laid stones, and rebuilt the castle in baroque style between 1718 and 1734.
