The Renaissance chateau with ground floor arcade in the courtyard was built in the second half of the 16th century. In 1829 the chateau burned and restorations were conducted in the Classicist style. In 1849-1850 the east wing of the chateau was reconstructed into the pseudo-Gothic Chapel of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, which forms the entrance area to the chateau.
