Pieskowa Skala Castle towers over the Pradnik Valley in the northern part of Ojcow National Park. It is a fortified Renaissance residence with preserved medieval elements and additions from later periods. The castle is called the "pearl of the Polish Renaissance". Inscribed in the Jurassic landscape with the famous Hercules' Mace, it is now the only well-preserved stronghold on the Trail of the Eagle’s Nests and is one of the most important modern residences in Lesser Poland and the whole country. Today, as a museum, it is a branch of the Wawel Royal Castle. The castle has been used many times to shoot scenes in films such as: “Stakes Larger Than Life”, “Janosik”, “With Fire and Sword”, “Fire in the Steppe”, “Reich” or “Nie klam, kochanie”.
