Podzamek – a palace, today a Nursing Home, a palace complex

The palace in Podzamek was built on the site of a Renaissance manor from the 16th century which belonged to the parish of the Augustinians from Kłodzko. In 1554 the building was purchased by the chancellor of the Kłodzko Land, Heinrich von Rengern. Over the years, the estates of Podzamek changed owners many times. In 1572 it belonged to the imperial war advisor Hansa von Pannwitz und Mechwitz auf Pogrell, in 1669 to duchess Maria Benigna Piccolomini von Arragona, after 1696 to count Jan Emil von Goetze and in 1780 to his descendant, Anton von Magnis. In the 18th century the building was reconstructed. In the 19th century, when it was owned by the commander of a cavalry brigade, count Oskar von Strachwitz, it took on its current, Neo-Gothic shape. The palace is a two-storey, three-winged structure with a quadrilateral tower resembling the town hall tower of Florence. In the palace wing, on the second and the third floors, there is a chapel of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is eclectic in nature and was built on a Greek cross plan.

During martial law, troops of the Motorized Reserves of the Citizens' Militia (ZOMO) were stationed in the palace. Later the building served as a holiday centre, among other things. The Renaissance portal, made by Jerzy Daniel, has survived to this day. On the elevations traces of the sgraffito decorations have been preserved. Today the building houses a Nursing Home. The site is surrounded by a well-maintained park. On the other side of the road on which the palace is situated, on the edge of the forest, there is a mausoleum. One of the owners of the castle is buried there – Oskar von Strachwitz and his wife, Hedwig. The palace chapel  is taken care of by the Franciscan Fathers from Kłodzko.
