Kapušiansky castle is the ruins of the castle above the village Kapušany, over the road to the town of Bardejov and is situated on a rocky outcrop of Zámčisko hill.

The castle was built in the 13th century on a steep hill, on the site of an old Slavic settlement. The castle was supposed to protect the royal road leading from Prešov to the north. Its first owner was the genus Moglód. In 1312, during the fighting between Karol Robert and Csák Máté destroyed the castle. Around 1410 it got Andrej Kappy, who built a new fortified building.

Due to the danger of Turkish invasions, the castle was fortified in the second half of the 16th century to meet the requirements of new military technology. At the beginning of the 18th century, the castle was captured by the troops of František Rákóczi II who set the castle on fire in 1709.

In 1712 it was temporarily repaired, but already in 1715 it was demolished by a decision. It still stands up to a considerable height of the stone wall. On some still remains of plaster, elsewhere partially preserved stone lining windows, loopholes, portals.
