The oldest castle in Majkowice was located in the eastern part of the settlement and probably had the form of a wooden tower. It was founded perhaps in the 13th century and functioned in the first half of the fourteenth century, as a property of the Nagodzice-Jelitczyk family. An unconfirmed tradition of its construction connects it with the participant of the battle of Płowce, knight Florian Szary. To the northeast of it there was another tower or perhaps a more elaborate building, mentioned in the sources as the Castrum Surdęga. It was created in the fourteenth century or a little later. It did not exist for a long time and was dismantled in the 16th century. The castle, or rather a manor house in Majkowice, was built at the beginning of the 16th century at the initiative of the Majkowski-Nagodzice family, probably using the material from the previous building. It was expanded in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and was destroyed by the Swedish army in 1702.
The manor house is in a state of advanced ruin, which includes remains of a tower, fragments of load-bearing walls and a small cellar. Admission to the castle area is free.
