After the Hungarian conquest this land became the property of Aba kin, until the 13C, when they lost it because they fought against the king. Due to its great geographical circumstances, this land started to develop quickly. After the Tatar invasion, the first castles were built. In the 14C it became a town.

When the Turks invaded Hungary it became a part of the Ottoman Empire. It was part of the sultan’s land, thus it was relatively protected. Due to this, the town developed during Turkish times as well, and became an important cultural and economical centre of this land.

Gyöngyös and its surround plaid an important role during the War of Independence in 1948-49. Windishgrätz and Görgey - the Habsburg and the Hungarian general – both staid in the town for some time. After the war, the surrounding hills became refuge of those, who wanted to be in hiding.

During the 20C some industrial develops were made. In recent years the traditional agriculture - grape cultivating and vine culture - is getting more and more important again.
