Börzönce is a small village located towards the west of Zalaszentbalázs and can be entered via a forest-covered access road. Its surroundings are favoured resting and recreation places. The most interesting feature of this single-street, small municipality in an undulating region is the chapel devoted to Saint Lőrincz. Another characteristic feature of the southern Zala region was that the owners of larger wine-hills had small chapels erected on their lands in the 18th – 19th century. The chapel on the Börzönce wine-hill was built 1801 in Late-Baroque style. There are hardly any sermons celebrated today. The keys can be obtained following a previous appointment at the mayor’s office.
There are benches in the cultivated area around the church so that weary visitors can continue their journey along the row of cellars after a short rest.
There is a huge oak in the vicinity of the chapel along a tourist path marked with a yellow sign. It is the largest oak in the southern Zala region with a circumference of 540 centimetres. It is worth to stop for a while on the wine-hill as when the weather is clear, you can see from most of its points as far as Badacsony.
