Šariš Castle

Šariš Castle (Slovak:Šarišský hrad) are the ruins of a castle situated at top of a hill, 6-7 km north-west from Prešov, Slovakia in the traditional region Šariš (named after this castle).

The castle is one of the oldest castles and biggest in Slovakia. It was permanently settled from the Neolithic to the 4th century AD, then from the 10th to the 12th century, and finally a new castle was built in the 13th century. This castle burned down in 1678.

Under the hill there is a small town called Veľký Šariš (literally Great or Big Šariš).
