Cave dwellings

The cave dwellings  represent the architecture and building culture  of the  people. The cave dwellings were built by almost without exception by the direct production workers (farmer, craftsman, contract worker). The most significant cave dwelling complexes can be connected to the areas once known for their quarrying, including Demjén. In Bükkalja they were built not only of stone, but also in stone. This is best  illustrated by the large number of wine cellars in the village  (304 in total).

In this region people often used to carve their dwellings and side building into rhiolite tuff lime stone. Besides smaller farm buildings (stores, barns) and wine cellars of bigger size often huge stone sheds big enough to give shelter to whole sheep flocks or cattle herds were carved into the hill. This shed supported by several pillars carved from the rock is of 200 m2 size.
