The history of the mansion dates back to the 14th century when it was built by the Geczy family and reached its current appearance at the end of the 16th century. Later it was also owned by other aristocratic families. It is worth noting that the father of the famous "White Lady of Levoca", the Hungarian noblewoman Julianna Korponay-Geczy, was born and lived in the mansion. According to legend, she was charged with treason and was punished by beheading in public.
The cellars of the mansion used to serve as a prison, later, during the Rakoczi Revolt, coins were minted there. Due to the Turkish raids, the original castle had a fortification built consisting of a defensive wall with four corner bastions and a moat, which was crossable by drawbridge.
