We bid farewell the castle, we go through the castle gate.

Janowiec is a village in Pu³awy County, Lublin Voivodeship, in eastern Poland.

Janowiec Castle - a Renaissance castle built in between 1508–1526, on a steep Vistulan hillside in Janowiec (14,5 km south of Pu³awy), Lublin Voivodeship, in Poland.

The castle was first mentioned in 1537. It is most likely that the castle was built by Miko³aj Firlej at the beginning of the sixteenth century, while the castle was expanded by his son, Piotr, the Voivode of the Ruski Voivodeship. The bastion, used as a residence, was destroyed by the Swedish army in 1655 during The Deluge. Although the following owners of the castle did their very best to rebuild the castle, the castle never managed to gains its former glory. In 1928, an archaeologist, Leon Koz³owski had taken over the castle, but his plans to reconstruct the castle were stopped by the Second World War. After the Second World War, the castle was left in its former state, being one of many private castles. In 1975, the castle was bought by the Nadwi¶lañskie Museum in Kazimierz Dolny in Poland.
