The story of Farkasmály:

The national fairs and weekly markets in the town were already important int he 14th century, and this enabled Gyöngyös to join the wine trade to the north-east which determined the town’s future economic and social development. At the western foot of Sár Hill, the vines of Farkasmály were planted in 1750. Below the quarry, rows of cellars were cut in to the vulcanic rock. The earliest was built for Baron Lőrincz Orczy, who in 1786 had another cellar hewn right next to the first, connecting the two with a passageway. Altogether 26 cellars were bulit in Farkasmály in the 18th and 19th centuries, in part with two-storeyed press houses and in part without. The six earliest cellars are known as the „Middle Town”, as they are in the middle of the row, while those built around 1834 comprise the „Hungarian Town” and later cellars the „German Town”. At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries the row of cellars become a popular place for excursions with the people of Gyöngyös, and May fairs and vintage festivities were also held here.
