In the second half of the 14th century, a castle was built at the area of the Kurozwęki wealth. The stronghold was surrounded by a stone wall with an entrance from the southern side. The people who lived later in this castle, improved the headquarters and diversified it with new elements. Over the years, the wooden building was changed into a brick building, and living towers were also added.
The 17th century is a period of big changes. This was the time, when the building went through transformation into a residence. But the construction lasted very long and most likely didn’t finish until the late 18th and early 19th century. After 1810, the time had also come to renovate a park surrounding the palace. This was handled by Anastazja Sołtykowa, who brought here an outstanding artist-gardener.
