Architectural and Historical Development:
The house originated probably in the Gothic period, when it was added to the town fortification, still preserved on the ground floor. Further reconstruction was carried out in the Rennaissance period. From other constructions the most serious was probably in 1960, when a great deal of the preserved historical details were devastated and the historical value of the house decreased.
