Pastuchów – tower house

History

The tower in Pastuchów was erected at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries, as the seat of the von Kalkreuth family. It is a remnant of a medieval castle. In the second half of the 16th century a mansion and farm buildings were added in the neighborhood. Between 1835 and 1945 the estate was owned by von Wietersheim – Kramst family.

Architecture

The four-storey stone tower was built on a rectangular plan measuring 9,5×11 meters with a small extension that housed a staircase. Window openings have renaissance character, the gables of the shorter tower facades are decorated with blendes.
