The castle in Krasiczyn is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful monuments of the Polish Renaissance and one of the most important attractions located near Przemyśl. It is also a place very often visited by the inhabitants of Przemyśl, who love to walk through the park located in the castle on Sunday.
The castle has a very turbulent history behind it, but despite numerous fires and wars, it has remained almost unchanged. In the seventeenth century, a castle was built in the form of a quadrangle with beautiful towers in the corners, each with its own name: Divine Tower – with a chapel, Papal Tower – in which there were also guest rooms for high church dignitaries, Royal Tower and Noblemen’s Tower – which was supposed to reflect then the most important centers of power, including the division into ecclesiastical and secular authority. Intra-gate with a gate and a square Clock Tower led to the center, in front of which there was a drawbridge, which was later changed into a stone one.
Since 1996, thanks to “Agencja Rozwoju Przemysłu S.A.”, renovation, construction and conservation works were carried out, which led to the creation of a modern tourist, hotel and gastronomic base.
