Castle in Markušovce

The manor house is one of most representative buildings of southern Spiš. It was built by František Mariássy in 1643. The original form of the Renaissance fortress was with four circle towers in the corners but was changed in 1773 as a major reconstruction into a rococo style. The manor house includes the exhibition of historical furniture which demonstrates the development and representation of the types of furniture, art and interior accessories from Renaissance through to Baroque, Rococo, Classicism, Empire and Biedermeier to excerpts from the 20th century. The interior of the meeting room of the Csáky family is in a unique romanticism style. The original look of the castle with rich stucco arches and decor are preserved to this very day. The most valuable item can be found behind the manor house - the uncompleted summerhouse Dardanelles.
