On the edge of the Káli Basin, in the region spanning from Salföld through Kővágóörs to Hegyestű, there’s a unique natural site: a stone field that is just like a sea of stones. The largest and most intact stone mass, located just outside Szentbékkálla, used to be buried in the seabed of the Pannonian Sea and it is the most important geological sight of the Káli Basin.

The field includes stones that are the size of a smaller house and ones with weird shapes. Until the end of the 19th century, the “fruits” of the field were used for making millstones – Kővárgóörs, situated on a nearby stony plain, was named after this practice. A famous attraction of the region is the Ingókő (Swaying Stone), a gigantic, flat block of stone that can be tipped if you stand on its edge.

Tip: You can reach the stone field and the Ingókő on a roughly 600-metre long dirt path starting at the cemetery on the edge of the village.
