Litomyšl Castle

Litomysl Castle is a monumental Renaissance castle dating from the years 1568–1581. It is an outstanding and immaculately preserved example of the arcade castle, a type of building first developed in Italy and modified in the Czech lands to create an evolved form of special architectural quality. The noble family of Pernstejn’s rebuilt the original Mediaeval castle into a Renaissance castle in the second half of the 16th century. Despite of later reconstructions of interiors especially at the end of the 18th century the appearance of the castle remained almost intact including the unique scoring decoration of facades and fronton. The castle complex is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
