GRANARY IN JABLONOV NAD TURŇOU
The Granary is a medieval feudal granary with the wine cellar situated in the western edge of the village Jablovov nad Turňou. It is a stone house built on stone foundations. It served as a grain granary, wine cellar as well as food and fruit storehouse in the past. The local wine was supposedly delivered as far as Vienna. The granary building belonged to the Eszterhazy Family. Nowadays the Granary is managed by the association Alma-centrum, which deals with tourism development. It offers traditional gastronomy presentation, fruit and vegetable exhibition, home-made bread baked in natural ovens and jam-making. The upper floor of the Granary provides accommodation rooms for tourists. A wine cellar is set up in the lower area providing an opportunity to taste some Turňa wines as well as the exhibition and mini museum of the Turňa viniculture. There is an oven grove with outdoor ovens for bread baking located at the Granary.
