On the peak of a steep mountain situated on the right bank of the San river, the ruins of Sobień castle from the second half of the 14th century can be seen. The castle was owned by the wealthy chivalry house of Kmita. Then the Kmita family moved their abode to Lesko, where Piotr Kmita erected a castle in the16 th century, which was subsequently extended by the Stadnicki family. The castle is open to visitors.

An Italian park was established already in the 16th century and continued through the 17th century. In the 18th century the park was planted with lime tree alleys. They are listed in the castle records from that century. In the first half of the 19th century the Krasicki family established a landscape park around the castle.

Okolica ładna, dobre jedzenie. W pokojach nie ma wentylacji, był lekki zaduch, ale uchylone okno rozwiązywało problem częściowo (Pokój 8). Dobre jedzenie, blisko basenu. Pozdrowienia dla kolonii Almatur 20-29.08.21!

ilosc pająków w calym hotelu jest przerażająca na korytarzach,w pokajach i doslownie wszędzie. Na stołówce nie podają noży a jak grzecznie zapytalam czy mozna dostac nóż odburknęła że mogę sobie sama wziąć. Wszystko ok ale moglaby chociaz grzecznie odpowiedzieć a nie tonem jak do swojego wroga. Pokoje male totalnie brudne wszedzie kurz i pająki. Nie polecam

Ogólnie ok. Trochę jak za tą kasę to stare tapczany. Pan konserwator to mistrz, drzwi 80 dopasował do ościeżnicy 70. Drzwi do łazienki otwierają się do środka co zmniejszyło jej i tak małą powierzchnię. Pokój nr 25.

A noble castle of the Kmita family from the 16th century, rebuilt by the Stadnicki family into a bastion castle in the 17th century, and then rebuilt by the Krasicki family in the neo-Renaissance style in the 19th century. It currently houses a hotel. Renovation works are taking place around the castle.

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.
