Over a steep, wooded hill, descending almost straight into the Poprad River, opposite the centre of Rytro, we can see a stone, cylindrical structure. This is the best preserved building in the ruins of the castle, which, from this such picturesque, but easy to defend place guarded the passage through a narrow section of the Poprad Valley. It is not known exactly when the castle was built: today, the most common opinion is that it was built at the turn of the 13th and 14th century by Czech King, Wenceslaus II, who also ruled Małopolska back then. What has been preserved until today, is a huge fortified tower and perimeter walls offering a beautiful view of Rytro and the Radziejowa Range.
