Ryczów
Ryczów lies in the commune of Ogrodzieniec, in the district of Zawiercie. Among the fans of the Polish Jura, the village is known primarily for the ruins of the local fortified watchtower. It may have been built, like many other buildings of this type in the Jura, by Casimir the Great, in the fourteenth century, in order to strengthen the border of the Polish Kingdom at that time. Though some doubt that this king erected the stronghold.
Pilica
The first Jews settled in Pilica, an old town which lies east of Zawiercie, in the sixteenth century. Before the Holocaust, they represented the vast majority in the town. In the twenty-first century, the only trace of their presence is a large cemetery located on the edge of the town. This is the other Jewish cemetery in Pilica founded in 1842. It occupies an area of approximately 1 hectare. It is fenced. 327 typical tombstones with inscriptions mostly in Hebrew have survived to this day.
Podzamcze
Ogrodzieniec Castle is the largest castle of the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland and, undoubtedly, one the most beautiful castles in Poland. It is located on Mount Janowski at the heart of the Upland. Fantastic rock formations, which were used to construct the castle, make the majestic ruins even more picturesque. The castle is situated in the central part of the Polish Jura and it is easy to get there. The red marked Eagles' Nests Trail runs nearby.
Podzamcze
In Podzamcze, on the road leading from Ogrodzieniec to Pilica, in a charming place, there is one of the Marian shrines. In this place, the cult of the Mother of God goes back to the first half of the nineteenth century, when Saint Mary appeared on the rock to one of the local residents. The chapel itself is a new object and dates back to 2000. The solemn ceremony of the foundation of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rock climbing took place in 2002.
