Originally a Renaissance baronial hall, built 1562 - 1574 for Zikmund of Šelmberk, afterwards remodelled as a chateau with several wings. Subsequently, Late Renaissance and baroque extensions were added, but these were destroyed by a fire in 1829. Later, renovations were undertaken and a neo-Gothic chapel added.
The chateau now serves as the Orlice Museum.
