Tenczyn Castle

The castle stands on the remnants of a Permian period lava stream, the highest hill of Garb Tenczyński, which is 411 m above the sea level. One of the largest castles in the Lesser Poland region, lying on the Trail of the Eagles' Nests, built in the Middle Ages and historically associated with the mighty Tęczyński family, it was destroyed by the Swedish-Brandenburg army during the Deluge (Northern War II) in the mid-17th century. Rebuilt, it burnt down in the middle of the 18th century. In ruins over the years, it was returned to its former owners from the Potocki family (which bought the castle in 1816) and is gradually rebuilt. There's a quest (treasure hunt) available in the location.
