Nenáročný výstup, krásny výhľad na okolie.

Zrúcanina hradu Kolátka, pôvodne Konradstein, leží na kraji dedinky Rozbehy nad obcou Cerová. Pôvodne slúžil ako hrad strážiaci Českú cestu. Bohužiaľ zub času sa na ňom značne podpísal, aj keď tu prebiehajú konzervačné práce. Hrad je asi 300-400 metrov od miesta kde sa dá zaparkovať, takže prístup je veľmi jednoduchý a pohodlný. Odporúčam spojiť s výletom na hrady Ostrý Kameň a Dobrá Voda.

Najkratší výlet v mojom živote :) Od parkoviska pri rozhľadni je to ku hradu asi 5 min. chôdze. Optimálne pre rodiny s malými deťmi. Oplatí sa poprechádzať sa aj v priľahlom lese okolo veternej turbíny.

Korlátsky hrad (Korlátko, Korlátka, Cerovský hrad) je jeden z viacerých hradov, ktorý nájdete v Malých Karpatoch. Tento konkrétne sa nachádza pri obci Cerová v časti Rozbehy, na západnej strane Malých Karpát. Je to tá časť obce, ktorú už zdiaľky spoznáte podľa vrtúľ turbín veternej elektrárne. Hrad sa rozprestiera nad obcou, na krátkom skalnatom výstupku v nadmorskej výške 455m. Dostať sa na zrúcaninu hradu Korlátko je veľmi jednoduché. Stačí keď z obce Cerová pôjdete smerom na časť Rozbehy a na križovatke v Rozbehoch odbočíte doprava (smerom na západ). Následne pôjdete stále rovno do strmšieho kopca až k záveru obce, kde nájdete parkovisko kúsok za cintorínom. Asfaltová plocha je našťastie rozľahlá, takže tu zaparkuje viacero áut. Z parkoviska je to na hrad možno 10 minút pešo. Nachádza sa tam aj smerovník, ktorý vás odnaviguje správnym smerom. Prejdete úzkym pásom lesa za ktorým sa nachádza lúka a v pozadí už uvidíte samotný hrad.

Roman Walls of Lugo

Roman Walls of Lugo are an exceptional architectural, archaeological and constructive legacy of Roman engineering, dating from the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The Walls are built of internal and external stone facings of slate with some granite, with a core filling of a conglomerate of slate slabs and worked stone pieces from Roman buildings, interlocked with lime mortar.

Their total length of 2117 m in the shape of an oblong rectangle occupies an area of 1.68 ha. Their height varies between 8 and 10 m, with a width of 4.2 m, reaching 7 m in some specific points. The walls still contain 85 external towers, 10 gates (five of which are original and five that were opened in modern times), four staircases and two ramps providing access to the walkway along the top of the walls, one of which is internal and the other external. Each tower contained access stairs leading from the intervallum to the wall walk of town wall, of which a total of 21 have been discovered to date.

The defences of Lugo are the most complete and best preserved example of Roman military architecture in the Western Roman Empire.

Despite the renovation work carried out, the walls conserve their original layout and the construction features associated with their defensive purpose, with walls, battlements, towers, fortifications, both modern and original gates and stairways, and a moat.

Since they were built, the walls have defined the layout and growth of the city, which was declared a Historical-Artistic Ensemble in 1973, forming a part of it and becoming an emblematic structure that can be freely accessed to walk along. The local inhabitants and visitors alike have used them as an area for enjoyment and as a part of urban life for centuries.

The fortifications were added to UNESCO"s World Heritage List in late 2000 and are a popular tourist attraction.
