Artist's Description

After the death of John of Dubovec, the heirs quarreled over the heritage and the situation was so bad that the castle even became a store-house. It was paid by the mine owner Ferenc Thurzó. A lot of building activities took place at the castle afterwards. The wooden stairs at the Upper Castle were replaced by stone stairs. The same was done to the stairs between the Middle and the Upper Castle with the drawbridge. Also, a cellar was dug in the rocks of the castle court and a one-story residence-wing was built at the Lower Castle near the west wall.

György Thurzó also carried out some important repairs. One of the first was the building of a tunnel between both castle gates, above which was formed a large terrace. After this was all done he moved the living-wing and the building of the Chapel started partly using some old architecture. The inside furnishing of the Chapel was later on arranged in the spirit of the new owners of the Castle. One of the best-known remembrances is Renaissance grave tomb of György Thurzó from the beginning of 17th century and the Baroque altar from 1751 – 1752.
