Devecser (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈdɛvɛtʃɛɾ]) is a town in Veszprém county, Hungary.

In the Middle Ages there were five villages in the area of today's Devecser: Devecser, Kisdevecser, Szék, Meggyes and Patony. These villages expanded in the 12th and 13th century. There is an Esterházy castle in the town.

Industrial accident

In October 2010, there was an industrial spill when a sludge reservoir at the Ajka aluminum plant burst its banks, killing at least four people and injuring more than 120.[1]
