The area had already been inhabited by 5000 BCE. From around 400 BCE, Celtic tribes inhabited the area.
The city was identified as "Kapos" in the founding document of the Episcopate of Pécs in 1009. The rectangular motte castle was reconstructed as a stone castle in the 15th century. The castle was destroyed in 1702 at the order of Leopold I, Holy Roman Emperor.
