The castle building is one of the most extensive feudal complexes in Slovenia. The castle is a real specialty, as we are first surprised by the unusual shape of the inner courtyard with a higher western and lower eastern level, which is due to the shape of the castle hill. The castle courtyard, surrounded by towering arcades, is surrounded by a pentagonal floor plan of perimeter tracts, reaching in some places to the first and in some places to the second floor. Although the design hides elements of the medieval castle core, today the whole shows a Baroque image from the 17th century. It also includes parts from the 16th and 18th centuries (1751), especially the chapel with a varied roof and the bell tower. More about the castle
