This is where I walked through from the Valtice Square to see Valtice Castle.

Would you believe, the reliefs on the gate are plastic!

Have a look at my photo, to understand this.
In the photo, on the left of the entrance, is a goddess with a helmet, and above is the saying, "One hardly forgets kindness."
To the right, is an angel with trumpet, with a continuation saying, "brightness of faith will survive even a rock."

Way back in 1395, the Lichtensteins became the owners of the Castle and Town of Valtice and their Coat of Arms is in a prominent position at the top of the Arch.
