Gallows hill (Akasztó-domb)

In 1714, King Sigismund granted jus gladii, power of life and death, to the Abbey to arrest, convict and execute malefactors. This was the spot where the gallows pole was erected. Akasztó-domb was also a place of special fishing method, practised only in Tihany. One of the fishermen called "hill walker" climbed up to the top of the hill, followed the movements of the pelecus ("watched fish") shoal and gave instructions to the fishermen waiting in the boat to lay the net.
