  Chateau Telc

It wasn't hard to find the Chateau as it was located in one part of the Old Town Square.

It was built in the 14th century by Baron's from Hradec. Just an "L" shape building at the start, it was later rebuilt in Renaissance style.

I didn't go inside, but instead enjoyed the outside view, noticing the frescoes high on the wall's.

If you do go inside, this is what you can expect to see...............

"Renaissance halls with wooden panel ceilings.
Theatre Hall the ceiling is formed by the panels containing painted masquers.
The ceiling of the Knight Hall (1570) you will see the acts of Hercules
The Blue Hall, finished in 1561, contains the allegory of four elements personified by the Roman gods.
The ceiling of the famous Golden Hall consists of 30 octagonal panels with impressive figurative wooden carvings (1561)."

It does sound quite nice, and you can read more about the inside on the web-page
