Despite the research conducted before World War II as in the 50s we failed to find traces of brick in Zmigrod Stary. The castle was located on a hill called on the right bank of the Wisloka. It is assumed that the whole or the greater part was made of wood. Defensive qualities of the hill was extended even for a moat and rampart erected. Today you can see the earth fortifications, moat is 2 meters deep and up to 25 m in width. The whole is covered by forest.
The village already existed in the 14th century. And was a royal property. Then he passed into the hands Bogoriow family and his representative - voivode of Sandomierz Wojciech built a small castle at the end of the 13th century.
