The Settlement on Mount Birów in Podzamcze


Mount Birów rises 461 m above sea level. It is one of the characteristic hills in the area of Podzamcze and Ogrodzieniec. The picturesque rocky hill with a good view on the surrounding area was already a site the Neolithic settlement. Especially, the top parts of the hill, which form a depression surrounded by limestone outcrops, have important defensive qualities. Today, we can see a reconstruction of the Slavic settlement here.

Podzamcze
“Suchy Połeć”, which can roughly be translated as “Big Piece of Bacon”, also called “Suchy Palec” – “Dry Finger”, is a distinctive rock formation near the center of Podzamcze. In this region, there are German bunkers from the Second World War. They were part of the so called Ostwall, a fortification line whose task was to prevent the Red Army from invading the areas of Upper Silesia. Although the Soviet-German fighting in the nearby areas was fierce, the bunkers themselves did not play a bigger role, however.

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.
