Hanigovsky Castle is situated above the village of Hanigovce. Now, it's just a ruin of the castle. The original wooden castle was built by nobleman Mikčo in the 13th century.

In 1342, the nobleman Mikčo filed a request for the conversion of a wooden castle into a stone castle. The request was granted and the castle was rebuilt into stone, thus consolidating the border zone of the Kingdom of Louis I.

After the reconstruction, the castle was also called the Nový hrad (New Castle). The New Castle had several owners. In 1557, the castle burned down and the new owners - Transylvania noblemen Martin and Gašpar Pečovský - did not renew the castle because they built their residence in Nová Ves.

Over time, only the ruins remained of the castle. The civic association Novum castrum is currently taking care of these ruins. The association managed to reconstruct the gate in the castle, preserve the defensive wall and part of the palace.

The green marked tourist trail from Hanigovice (approx. 4 km, 1.5 hr) or the yellow marked trail from Ľutina (approx. 3 km, 1.5 hr) leads to the ruins.
