Summary/Abstract: The only trace of existence of the medieval fortress Nevade is preserved in the Charter issued in 1411 by Hungarian King Sigismund to peer Petar Perenji, as well as in the name of the village of Nevada, located near Gornji Milanovac and former Rudnik. The abundance of material remains in this area is completely understandable if we bear in mind the importance of the medieval city of Rudnik and mining grounds around it. Although on the territory of the village of Nevada, there have not been found yet medieval material traces, there are remains of several fortresses in its vicinity. The fortress located in the hill of Trijeska, in the territory of the Jablanica village, on the mouth of the Jablanica Stream and the Grabovicka River, is the nearest one to the present-day village of Nevada. By all accounts this fortress is so far non located fortress of Nevada. Located near the village of Nevada, the fortress in Trijeska is one of the dominant points on the southern sides of Rudnik, from where it was possible to control the roads from Rudnik to Moravian Grac and Žiča. At the same time it was also part of the fortifications that protected the medieval town of Rudnik and the territory where strip mines, plants and settlements were located.
