Description

Bodoň are the remains of a castle built on a rocky ground in Sigord. The origin of the castle dates back to the 13th century. After the invasion of the Tatars into the area at the end of the 13th century, it was severely damaged and no longer restored. Thus, the castle probably existed for just a few decades.

At present, there are traces of the castle on the rock plateau, on the edge of which there is a more regular elevation - a trace of the perimeter fortifications. The footsteps of the stone tower are in the highest part of the plateau and its circular plan is still readable today. There are no other traces of masonry objects on the plateau, but apparently there were other wooden residential and farm buildings on the plateau too.

The marked hiking trails lead from Zlatá Baňa and Abranovce to the ruin, but you can also get here along the forest paths from Sigord. The marked trail from Zlatá Baňa is approximately 3 km long.
