State Chateau Litomyšl is a rare example of an adaptation of an Italian Renaissance palace for the conditions of transalpine countries. It was built in the 1560-80s by Vratislav of Perstain as a gift for his beloved wife Maria Manrique de Lara. The Perstain Renaissance estate was completed by Baroque renovations carried out by other owners in the 17th and 18th century - the Trauttmansdorf and Wallenstein, with the help of the finest Baroque artists. The preserved Baroque chateau theatre from 1797 is a rarity. In 1999 the chateau was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
