Ghenci is 8 km from the municipality center towards Carei. It was first certified in 1290. It was owned by the Gencsi family starting from the XIVth century, but later a part of the estate was taken over by the Báthorys. The settlement has an interesting history. All of its XIXth century inhabitants were nobles with voting rights in the county's assembly, a unique phenomenon. This gave the otherwise unimportant village great influence in county issues. The 1888 floods of Eriu river and the 1904 fire made great damage in the village.

The monumental size Gothic style Calvinist church was built in 1869-1885. The Greek Catholic church dates from 1869 according to the inscription on the tower's roof.

The Roman Catholic chapel was built with Carei parish's support to which it belongs. It was consecrated in 2002 and dedicated to Saint Ladislau.

In Ghenci there is a monument dedicated to the soldiers who died in the Second World War.

A community center organizes various cultural events in the village. One of the most popular feasts is the Grapes Ball that besides attracting fun loving people also is a good opportunity for knowing traditional culture.
