  • You can spend Sunday afternoon, the castle on the Hill (cool walk), beautiful views from the Tower of the green surroundings. I recommend you visit the Castle and open-air museum! IT is WORTH

  • With perhaps 5 years first time dad brought me to the towers and I will remember life (especially because on tv letting go with the holiday Spirits). Then my daughter also went there with me and also admired views of wisłe and the surrounding countryside. If my grandson will go there too? We'll see.

  • Well developed resources for regional tourism. The Castle as the Jura mountains well preserved, beautiful view from the tower. Along with the castle to visit the open-air Museum of peasant at the foot of the Castle.

  • The great ruins of the old Castle are on a wooded hill with a height of 362 m, which is part of the Tenczyńskiego Ridge. Despite several modifications it has retained its original shape and the Gothic character. Is built on a Pentagon-like plan with local stone with a few fragments of brick. A distinctive part of the castle is a tower 28 meters high, which is used to be core of the Castle, now half hidden in the walls of the wings of the South-East. It has 4 floors, which preserved unique działobitnie (firing position) with embrasures. Under the Tower there were prison cells. The main body of the Castle has 3 floors and has an internal courtyard. There you can see on the walls of the coats of arms of bishops: Oleśnicki-Dębno and Jastrzębiec-Hieracium, who were responsible for the transformation of the castle in the 15th century, and shields from the coats of arms of Andrzej Zebrzydowski designed. There is also a deep well in which even light was installed (you need to activate it yourself). On the ground floor were m.in.: the refectory, kitchen, pantry, a coach house, on the first floor rooms of priests, the hospital and the Chapel, and on the second floor of the prison cells and rooms for service (rooms are described tiles). Entry to the Castle ran by a drawbridge over a deep 7 meters moat, which remains with the neck a gate have been found during archaeological work. The gate had two entrances for pedestrians and horse riding. In front of the gate we have quite extensive settlement round. The whole is surrounded by a high stone wall perimeter. It is perfectly suitable to explore, you can go to the individual floors, ruined salt rooms, and the view from the tower is simply breathtaking. The entrance to it is now rebuilt, once led the attic adjacent building. In addition, the floor is a small but interesting Museum with the history of the Castle, and at the foot of the Castle Hill is still Breaking Ethnographic Park or Museum where you can watch rural buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries. Lipowiec is a absolutely one of the most interesting places in the Jura Krakowsko-częstochowska.
