Historic Sights in the Town of Vrbové » Curia of Móric Beňovský

Towards the close of the 19th century the noble curia situated in the row of houses at the boundary between the lower part of the Freedom Square and Beňovský street started to be identified as the natal house of the most famous native from Vrbové, Móric Beňovský, the King of Madagaskar, largely thanks to the writer Móra Jókaia (1825 - 1904).


Until 1995 the building housed flats rented by the town and a television repair shop was located on the ground floor.


Between 1995 and 1998 the curia underwent a general reconstruction that was commissioned and handed over to use for cultural purposes (historic exhibition, temporariy a municipal library) by the town. The ground floor of the building is used for commercial purposes (a restaurant, confectionery and small shops). Togehter with the building reconstruction the courtyard was architecturally finished and currently serves for the holding of cultural and social events for the wide public.
