The Moravská Třebová Château
The Moravská Třebová Château is located in the centre of the town on the site of an original castle dating from the 13th century and it is one of the most significant renaissance monuments not only in this country, but also in all of Central Europe. Its architecture combines the periods of the earliest and the late renaissance. It therefore documents the development of renaissance architecture in the Czech lands. It was mainly renovated at the end of the 15th and in the 1st half of the 17th centuries. The town was engulfed by a destructive fire in 1840. The castle was destroyed by the fire, but the château was renewed in the classicist style. The late renaissance arcades are among the most significant mannerist monuments in Central Europe. The portal dated 1492 is unique and it is considered to be one of the oldest renaissance monuments located to the north of the Alps. Visitors are able to view the château on several interesting tour routes. The Treasures of Moravská Třebová maps out the development of the history of the château from the 15th century up to the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The Alchemist’s Laboratory takes visitors into the laboratories of the alchemist, astrologist and court physician. Other options involve the opportunity to view the mediaeval torture chamber or to discover what rural life was like.
