The ruin of a Gothic castle, coming from the end of 13th or the beginning of the 14th century, is located 5 km southwest of Hermanovice, just above Cerna Opava River Valley and on high outcrops of Sokoli Rocks, 868 metres above sea level. Unfortunately, no written records of the castle have been preserved. The castle core was situated on three differently descending rocks, where the remains of rough walling (up to 2, 2 metres) have been preserved. On its western access side, the castle was separated from an ascendant ridge by an artificially modified gap, transforming into 18 metres wide ditch. In Bruntal museum, there is some archeological material being keept. It is mainly represented by ceramic and stone artifacts.
