The watchmen of olden times had built their groups of houses consisting of dwelling and farm buildings on hilltops and clearings, establishing in this way scattered settlements. Szalafő is a listed village on account of its structure, and it is a settlement that might possibly possess the most folk values in the Őrség region. In order to keep and show this settlement structure steeped in traditions of hundreds of years the Őrség Museum Complex of Folk Architecture and Lifestyle has been established at Pityerszer, where the buildings of three local homes are on display, effectively illustrating the traditional lifestyle and cultural heritage of their dwellers.
