Korzkiew Castle

Korzkiew Castle - a fourteenth-century Romanesque castle located in Korzkiew, Lesser Poland Voivodeship in Poland. The castle is part of the Trail of the Eagles' Nests tourist route. The castle complex includes the castle ruins, housing residence, a grange and park, enlisted on the register of objects of cultural heritage of the Lesser Poland Voivodeship.

The history of the castle begins in the fourteenth-century, when in 1352, Jan z Syrokomli bought the Korzkiew hill and built a rectangular, stone tower, performing defence and resident functions. By the end of the fifteenth-century, as well as in 1720 (when the proprietors were the Jordanowie), the building was rebuilt. Then on, the castle was owned by the Wesslowie and Wodziccy. Towards the end of the nineteenth-century, the building fell into a state of ruin.
