The cliff of the Hajnáčka Castle hill is the result of a strongly eroded volcanic diatreme, on which a castle was built in the Middle Ages. The cliff made up the castle walls as well, into which people built and carved the building and stairs.The remains of the palace and tower walls can be found on the hard to reach upper part of the castle with a gunpowder cellar.

On the southwest from Hajnáčka we can find the most intact lava cover of the Cerová vrchovina Mountain, the Pagan Castle (Pohanský hrad). It lays between Stará Bašta, Hajnáčka and Šurice villages. The most valuable points of ineterest are the remains of Celtic fringe masonry, the “rock street” under the souther edge, sloped rocks (Dvojitá skala, Čertova skala), pseudokarstic caves, the Pillared cave (182 m) and the Labyrinth-cave (151 m) which are the biggest.
