The best known spot on Radan is the Devil's Town – a peculiar rock formation consisting of hundreds of mushroom-like posts, located on its southern slopes. Near the Devil's Town there are ruins of Ivanova kula – city of Ivan Kosančić, medieval military commander. Justiniana Prima (Caričin grad), a Byzantine city from the 6th century, is located on the southeast of the mountain, near Lebane.
In summer 2010, Radan attracted media attention because of a "magnetic hill" located on a road near the village of Ivanje. After initial sensationalist articles about "anti-gravity", it soon turned out that it is just an optical illusion. Still, the hill is seen as an opportunity for a tourist attraction.
