A distinctive basalt conical peak above the village of Sedličky, 600 m W of Valdice, a typical landmark of the Jičín Region. It’s SW slope was damaged by quarrying. A chapel of St. Mary Magdalene from around 1700 with a painting of the saint on its top, the climb is difficult. From the chapel, there is a splendid panoramic view, including the whole of the Jičín basin, the Bradlec, Kumburk, Tábor, Kozákov, Veliš hills and the city of Jičín. Zebín is also a protected nature reserve with rare thermophilic vegetation. An isolated and very ancient Church of All Saints stands in a cemetery on the south slope. It received its present Baroque appearance around 1700 and houses two paintings with Passion themes from 1614, unique Czech art pieces from the Mannerism period. A wooden polygonal belfry stands on the slope behind the church.
