The large Trenčín castle has towered over the steep rocks, just above the town, for many centuries. The famous sign on the castle rock is a proof that its beginnings are dated to the Roman Empire Age. It used to be a royal guardian castle in 11th century. Then it was developed by Matúš Čák Trenčiansky, who owned it at the end of the 13th and in the beginning of the 14th century. He built the residential palace and Matúš tower, which is still a dominant of the castle.The other important reconstructions of the castle occured in the 14th and 15th, and in 16th century when it was developed by the Zápoľský family. At the end of the 18th century it was damaged by fire, and it has been restored and conserved since the 19th century. The current castle area consists of the complex of the palaces excluding Matúš tower. In this area, visitors can see the Well of love, emblazoned with legends. There are also numerous collections installed in the castle´s interiors. From the castle´s cliff, visitors can decide what next sightseeing tour to the historical core of this picturesque town they will choose to go for.
