An austere stone tower and walls of the Tropsztyn Castle in Wytrzyszczka rise just above the road and the water surface of the Czchowskie lake.
Only when you are close will you notice that it is almost a new building, erected in recent years on the ruins of the original castle. The first stronghold was built here at the turn of the 13th and 14th century by knights Zbrosław and Gniewomir from Tropie. The castle was later rebuilt several times, but at the beginning of the 17th century it was abandoned and quickly fell into ruin. Legend has it that it is there, in the tunnels and dungeons under Tropsztyn, where the Inca treasure was hidden in the 18th century, after being brought from the castle in Niedzica. The castle is open to visitors only during summer holidays. You can explore the tower, the dungeons and the chambers, as well as see a film documentary about the searches for the legendary Inca treasure.
