Gyula castle is a medieval fortress built using fired bricks between 1403 and 1445 in Gothic style. During its turbulent history, it was occupied by the Turks for 130 years between 1566 and 1695, later used as a storage unit in the 18th and 19th century and finally restored to its former glory in the recent years.
