Pethő or Goldmark House

22 Kossuth Lajos Street, Keszthely 

The oldest historic building in the pedestrian area is the Baroque-style Pethő or Goldmark House, which is located in the middle of the street. Károly Goldmark, the famous composer was born here in 1830. The building projects far into the road, indicating the original width of the street. In the 15th century, there was a Pethő mansion in the same place, but the building obtained its present form in the 18th century. The courtyard can be reached through the wide, vaulted gateway, where the Baroque arcades of the ground floor and the upper floor can be seen.
In contrast to the courtyard, the house cannot be visited.
