    The green hilly surroundings offer a lot of paths for walking and hiking in the nature. As Ilava is situated in a valley, from two sides there are mountains, from the western side are the Vrsatecke brala (a part of The White Carpathians) with white rocks and ruins of a medieval castle and on the East there are the Strazovske mountains. One of the most beautiful peaks in Slovakia is for sure Vapec (956 m) above the village Horna Poruba. Every winter local people and tourists climb to the peak on St. Stephans day (26th December).

    The snowcapped prison and church

    Most of the visitors are curious about the prison - or let´s say rather the former Trinitarian monastery, but due to the prison you cannot visit these historical buildings, except for the baroque church. The priest can show you to behind the altar or open the mysterious crypta.
