Near the village of Przewodziszowice in the Polish Jura, there are ruins of one of the smaller Eagles' Nests. The local defense watchtower was built probably in the fourteenth or the late fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The builder of the watch tower was either King Casimir the Great or Duke Ladislaus of Opole. For some time in the fifteenth century, it became a property of knight-robber Kornicz called Siestrzeniec, who according to a legend, hid the stolen treasures here.i

Łutowiec is an inconspicuous village (formerly known as Oltowiec or Holtowiec). It is an old village, mentioned for the first time at the end of the fourteenth century. A medieval watchtower, of which remains have been preserved on one of the rock outcroppings, is one of the most mysterious objects of this kind in the Jura. It was probably founded in the fourteenth century, but already in the next century, it became abandoned and was beginning to fall into ruin.

It is associated with the trout farm of the Raczynskis, which was once the first trout farm in Europe. The building was put up at the initiative of Count Aleksander Raczyński, who was known as a passionate of tourism.
