|A step back in time
At the Protestant Synod held at Herczeg-Szőllős in 1576 one of the signatories was Martinus Ipaczifalvay, but we may suppose that he was relatively new to the faith, for when he signed this decree the residents of Ipacsfa had only changed religion some twenty years before. Stepping on a couple of hundred years we can see that the residents of today are neither against change, if they think that some good may come of it. There are a number of areas in the neighbourhood with capacity for tourist development. Although it is a cul-de-sac village, Ipacsfa does not consider this to be a disadvantage, as its out of the way character offers a much sought-after peace and quiet. Apart from the Protestant church the beam-well is worth seeing. There is also a fine local history collection revealing the hard-working life of previous generations. The collection of tools provides a step back in time. A new venue is now being prepared for this extensive collection of utensils. The village now provides comfortable modern tourist facilities for hikers, riders and cyclists, with open-air cooking and baking facilities.
