About

Jézuskiáltó means, in direct translation, the "Cry of Jesus" because, according to a local legend, the locals defeated the Tatars on the hill. The place has a strong echo, so the locals screamed the name of Jesus, and the Tartars, hearing the terrifying sounds, believed they would face a large army, which they couldn’t hope to defeat.

The cross, located at 537 m altitude, was erected by the Roman Catholic Church on the site of a wooden cross that guarded the horizon for decades.

The cross and the memorial plaque hold the memory of the 144 heroes who died on duty in the First World War.
