Kostelgrad is a medieval fortress, built on a rock, located north of Pregrada in a strategic position that allowed road control from different sides (405 m above sea level). The history of the Kostel manor can be traced back to the arrival of the Counts of Celje, and the most famous owner was the Keglević family. They are associated with the 500-year-old custom of Easter pistol shooting, which has the status of a protected intangible cultural treasure of the Republic of Croatia.

At the foot of the fortress is a very valuable architectural and urban complex consisting of the church of St. Emeric, the Chapel of the Suffering Jesus, the parish court, farm buildings with a well, and a historic cemetery. Since 2016, conservation and restoration construction works have been carried out, which are financed by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia.
