An example of a Silesian mansion originally inhabited by the local village leader (sołtys), established in the late 16th/early 17th century.

History

A Renaissance palace built in the late 16th/early 17th century and subsequently redesigned in the Baroque style in 1778 (date inscribed on the keystone of one of the portals), with further alteration works performed in the mid-19th century. Currently in a state of ruin.

Description

The palace is located in the western part of the village, in the vicinity of the park. Designed on an L-shaped floor plan, the palace features a basement underneath a part of its structure. Its interior follows a two-bay, enfilade layout. The main entrance is located on the middle axis of the eastern façade. The two-storey building was originally covered by a mansard roof. The surviving peripheral walls, rising up to the level of the crowning cornice, feature traces of sgraffito decorations on the southern façade.

The palace ruins are located in the western part of the village and are easy to spot when looking from the road leading to Świdnica. The site is private property; due to their poor technical condition, the ruins are considered unsafe.
