Also known as the Black Castle (although it is built of red brick), the residence formerly rivaled Mir Castle as the most elegant private château of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania.
The castle was devastated by the invading Swedes in 1704 and, due to financial stress experienced by the Sapiehas in the wake of the Domestic War, has never been restored.
