Tomada el 27/08/13
Located on the Przemyśl – Sanok route, near a crossing of the San River, the castle in Krasiczyn is one of the most magnificent and impressive pearls of the polish Renaissance Time Period.
The rectangular and specious courtyard is surrounded by the rooms and chambers from the north and the east, whereas the south and the west curtain walls are topped with a beautiful attic. In the middle of the western wing,  where the Rectangular Tower Clock stands there used to be the main entrance. This is also where a road from a once existing town led to, over a moat and through a drawbridge.
Another exceptionally valuable architectural element of the castle is a chapel located in the Divine Tower, compared to the King Sigismund’s Chapel of Wawel. Ornaments such as a richly carved portal, loggias, arcades and the unique murals - sgraffitos are really tremendous and spectacular.
