The original Gothic Vršatec castle from the 13th century was destroyed in time of Rákoczis rebellion in 1706.

The legend has that the castellan of this castle cut his leg in order to help his master to escape from the Tartar prison.

The ruins provide an excellent view of the whole of central Považie and the valley of the Váh river with the mountains Súľovské and Strážovské vrchy.

Instructive path, as well as various cyclist and hiking routes lead to the ruins.
