Renaissance castle on the San River

Castle in Krasiczyn

The Polish Renaissance resulted not only in the creation of Zamość or the modernization of Kraków. Its outcome is also the Castle in Krasiczyn, located on the San river bank. It was built on a square plan, crowned with a tower in each corner. In one of the towers there is a chapel, and above the entrance to the castle, leading picturesquely through a short bridge, there is a six-storey tower with an extended cupola. Construction began under the leadership of the Italian architect G. Appiani and lasted 50 years, producing a beautiful result. The walls are covered with sgraffito decoration covering a total area of 7,000 m2. It is worth paying attention to the attics, battlements and arcades in the courtyard.
