Ronovec castle, a ruin today, was found some time before 1261 in territory of Lichtenburks´. This lineage owned a large manor, spreaded from Cáslav town under Železné Hory mountains to Sázava river in the south and to neighbourhood of Ždár monastery in the east. Ronovec castle was established as one of the Lichtenburks´ power pillars. The ownership of the castle descended to “ Z Lipé” lineage later and after lineage called “Z Ronovce” occupied this castle as the last. Already during Hussite wars the castle was empty and since 1544 is mentioned as deserted. Therefore just a torso of the building has been preserved until nowadays. Coats of arms and plates with history of the castle are mounted into the castle walls.
