The Krasiczyn Castle is one of the most beautiful Renaissance castles in Poland and it looks really impressive. It has four circular towers - the Divine, the Pontifical, the Royal and the Noble (each is different) and beautifully decorated walls. All children admire the moat with attention , and the boys obligatory take a picture of themselves with a cannon (usually girls do not want to be worse).
The castle was built at the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by Stanislaw Krasicki and his son Marcin. From August 2011 in the renovated north wing of the castle you can see: vestments from the second half of the eighteenth century from the manufacture of Countess Louise of Mniszchów Potocka, hunting trophies of Prince Leon Sapieha and a room named after Cardinal Adam Stefan Sapieha, from whose hands the priest Karol Wojtyla has been ordained.
The park surrounding the castle contains many interesting and unusual trees and shrubs, often exotic, because Sapiehas, known as travellers, with each of their expeditions brought cuttings of plants. The most interesting specimens are worth mentioning, are especially impressive: the tulip tree, growing in front of the old barn, and the cork tree, the Bur oak wielkoowocowy or the Taxiodium.
