After the sudden death of Ossoliński the property was taken over by the another family member, but the construction of the palace was never fully completed.

During the Swedish Deluge in 1655, the palace was looted, but still, it was inhabitet up to 1770. Since the destruction of by the Russian army in the same year during the defense of by the supporters of the Confederation of Bar, Palace Krzyztopor became a ruin, which today is often visited by tourists.

According to legend the palace was built on the model of the calendar and had "windows so many as days in a year, rooms as much as weeks, great halls as many as months, and its four corner towers corresponded to the number of quarters".
