Bradlec Hill

Summit and castle ruins.

This prominent summit is, much like Kumburk Hill nearby, formed by Neogene nepheline basanite and breccia, which were emplaced into Permian melaphyres. Both types of rock contain interesting minerals, such as chalcedony in vugs in melaphyres, psilomelane covering surfaces of narrow fissures, siderite and analcite veinlets, thomsonite and magnetite. The top of the hill bears a ruin of the Bradlec Castle built in the 14th century.
