 The tourist value of Ghelința (Gelence) is the monument church from the age of the Árpáds built in honour of Prince Saint Imre, which is under UNESCO protection.  The painting of the nave’s wall dates from the 1330s and it can still be seen.

 The wall paintings represent scenes from the Bible and stories of saints, from which the Saint Ladislaus (László) legend is the most famous. The wall painting of the Saint Ladislau legend consists of six scenes: Saint Ladislaus goes to war on his white horse, war with the Huns in the battle from Cserhalom (1068), chasing the heathen chief who kidnapped the daughter of the bishop from Várad, a close-range fight with him during which the girl cuts the leg tendon of the Cumanian, and after cutting the Cumanian’s head off Saint Ladislaus rests in the lap of the girl.
 The former Greek-Catholic church, built in 1830, is also a remarkable ecclesiastical building. After the Second World War the Orthodox Church annexed it together with all its wealth. The patron saint of the church is Saint Nicholas.
Other sights of Ghelința:  the Jancsó mansion, the János mansion, the Roman-Catholic church.
