The Čap, also called the Čapská palice (Cap Head) is an iron sandstone column, situated on a plateau elevated 386.7 meters above sea. It is the place where towards the end of the 13th century the noble family of Berka of Dubá had a watch tower built. The tower used to stretch above the valley called Čapský důl (Cap Gorge) .
