Grodzisko in Motycz

Also referred to as ‘Drum’ and ‘Castle Hill’, the Motycz stronghold lies close to the Czechówka River, or more precisely on its right bank. Only parts of a single rampart and moat have survived to this day. The existence of the castle dates back to the 8th and 9th centuries, but from the 17th to the 19th century, a fortalice also existed in its place. It is a small building with defensive features. During archaeological work, many signs of the occupation of the inhabitants of the former castle were found. These included fragments of clay vessels, animal bones and an iron spearhead with burrs. Remains of a settlement that functioned at the same time as the castle were also discovered nearby. Today, the monument and the surrounding area are privately owned.
