Keblov is a municipality and village in Benešov District in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic.


The first written record of the village comes from the year 1295 as property of the Prague Bishops.

Keblov fortress

The fortress lay here, the first mention of it is from 1437, when a certain Jan Husovec sold the fortress Zaháj with a court to the burgher Jan Matys from Hostina. The remains of the fortress have been preserved in the forest on the eastern edge of the village. Its remains are a round hill still surrounded by a muddy moat. It was a towering fortress. Another mention was made in the second half of the 17th century, when it is stated that during the Thirty Years' War it was destroyed and therefore Jan Matys built a replacement wooden fortress in 1670, after which the fortress remained a well. Jan Matys then left the seat and built a brick fortress. Jan Matys died in 1702 and is buried in the Keblovský church. His tombstone is on the floor of the church. The Keblov fortress then lost its significance as a manor house and was rebuilt into a granary, and the event disappeared without a trace.
