On the hill in the north of Buia, you can see the ruins of an old castle. Documents dated 1467 speak of the castle of Vízaknai Miklós, from which in 1598 it came to the property of Mihai Vitezul voivode of Wallachia.

The family of Gálfi, Bethlen Gábor, is the owner of the list, and the latter donates to the Toldi György family, whose property remains until the 19th century. It is ruined at the beginning of the 20th century. From the single-storey house only the two corner bastions rise.

In the northern part was built a reinforced chapel with counterfort. In the sacristy there are also some fragments of frescoes. A lush vegetation reigns all over the castle.
