The Outbuildings


The history of the palace is linked with its outbuildings.


The southern outbilding existed already in the 17th century, and, according to family traditions was a heretical (unitarian) chapel (although another tradition situates the chapel in the northern, late-Renaissance part of the castle). Its main part was preserved (along with historical 18th-century wall tiles of Dutch style) and was renovated by the Centre for Theatre Practices “Gardzienice” in the early 1990s.


The northern (small) outbilding must come from the 18th century, as it is shown on a map from 1801. It was rebuilt in 1852.
