Pusztatorony / Puszta Tower

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Somogyvámos az 1575-ös adólajstromban Vámosfalva néven szerepelt. A falu korábban mai helyétől távolabb feküdt, a pusztatemplom közelében. Határában volt egy Csopak nevű falu, amelyet egy 1237-es oklevél is említ. A hódoltság alatt azonban teljesen elpusztult az a település, majd lassan a neve is feledésbe merült.A román stílusú "pusztatemplom" a 12. században épült, s romja a hódoltság óta dacol az idővel.Jellegzetessége, hogy tornya négyszögből nyolcszögbe formálódik. A fehér színt egy konzerváló festéktől kapta.

Somogyvámos was mentioned in the tax-roll as Vámosfalva back in 1575. The village was lying further away from its current location, nearby the church ruins. A bordering village named Csopak was mentioned in a charter in the year 1237. During the ottoman turk invasion Csopak was completely abandoned and destroyed even its name fallen into oblivion. The church was built in the 12th century in romanesque stlye and since the turkish subjection it is braving with the elements. One of the main distinctiveness is the tower shaping from tetragon to octogon form. The white colour is caused by a conservation paint.
