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.
Góra Birów, wznosząca się 461 m n.p.m., stanowi jedno z charakterystycznych wzniesień w rejonie Podzamcza i Ogrodzieńca. Skaliste, malownicze wzgórze, dające dobry widok na okolicę było już od czasów neolitu miejscem osadnictwa. Szczególnie partie wierzchołkowe wzniesienia, tworzące nieckę otoczoną wapiennymi ostańcami, dodawały temu miejscu istotnych walorów obronnych. Obecnie możemy tu oglądać rekonstrukcję grodziska słowiańskiego.
“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.
Active recreation with a big dose of thrill has recently become fashionable. The rope park "AdrenaLinaPark" in Podzamcze provides such entertainment. It is one of the first rope parks in the Jura. There are two routes of varying difficulty, and an amazing 140-meter downhill slide called "Tyrolka". An additional attraction is the location of the Park near the picturesque ruins of Ogrodzieniec castle.
The parish church of Saint James the Apostle in Giebło is one of the oldest churches in this part of Poland. It is dated from the twelfth century. The Romanesque church is an example of the characteristic monuments erected in the early centuries of the Polish statehood. The church survived unchanged until the early twentieth century, when it was rebuilt, but the body, in large part, has retained its original look.
