Castle of the Dukes of Mazovia in Rawa Mazowiecka – According to the chronicle of Jan Długosz, the castle in Rawa was founded by King Casimir the Great to defend the southern part of Mazovia. The construction of this Gothic fortress was completed at the end of the 14th century. The castle was built on a quadrilateral plan, on a stone foundation, with towers in the corners. The northern wing was a two-storey ducal palace. Inside, in the courtyard, there were farm and residential buildings for the castle’s crew. The main octagonal tower for prison is also a defensive function. Because the castle was surrounded by a moat, it was only accessible via a drawbridge. Currently, only the ruins of the castle remain.

There are also small remains of the wall along the entire length of the former stronghold pl.wikipedia.org
