Reconstruction of the Palace after 1802:

 

Pałac w Gardzienicach I połowie XIX w.

The first historical view of the Palace – from the first half of the 19th century (after the fire of 1802)

 

The palace was used as a residence until 1802 when it was destroyed by a fire. It was later rebuilt by Józef Miączyński, the owner of Gardzienice. In that period, neoclassical elements were added: a triangle tympanum, pilasters and ornamented arcades on the eastern facade, while the late-Renaissance northern facade and Baroque window ornaments remained intact.

 

In the mid-19th century the palace was used as a storehouse and the owners and their guests lived in the two outbuildings.
