Six info panels with maps supplemented by historical information
Placed in 2006
Six info panels with maps supplemented by historical information were placed near the castle in 2006 by Svazek obcí panství hradu Veveří.
The first lies at the intersection near Kostelíka Nanebevzetí Panny Marie Kaple Matky Boží (Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary [Chapel of the Divine Mother]), where the valuable panel painting of Madona z Veveří (Veveri Madonna) was discovered in the mid 14th century. It commemorates the first mentions of the original Roman settlement from 1222 and notes that at the end of the 13 century an early Gothic castle was founded and underwent development and gained its current form in the mid 18th century. While walking around it, you can count whether it really has nine fortified towers.
Public transport: Hrad Veveří or U Matky Boží (line 303)
