Suliszowice – castle

History

The watchtower was probably built in the 14th century, but it is not certain whether at the initiative of king Kazimierz the Great or prince Władysław Opolczyk. It was first mentioned only in 1581 and already it was probably abandoned.

Architecture

The castle consisted of an upper part on a 15-20 meter rock and a lower one surrounded by a earth ramparts and a moat. It was built of limestones.

Current state

To this day survived a section of the wall, length of 19,5 meters and the thickness of up to 1,8 meters and the relics of the buildings at the foot of the rock. The entrance to the rock is very difficult.
