After the Turkish occupation Fenessy Gyorgy returned to Eger, and he bought two lands in the civil town. He started to build a palace from stones, which were picked out from the hill behind the lands. In that way a huge cellar system was formed, where the tithe of the wines were stored. The cellar system was reached under the town from Gate Hatvan to Gate Rac through 3 km. After the nationalization in 1947. the cellar system wasn't in use, its condition was getting worse.
