Park near the Grudzinscy palace.

The Grudzinscy Palace is a renaissance building erected at the beginning of the 17th century. A richly decorated chapel stands next to it. The building is surrounded by a landscape park where trees, classified as natural monuments.

This 17th century palace in Poddębice is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and best preserved historical monuments from renaissance in central Poland. Its architecture relates to traditional renaissance manor houses from Lesser Poland.
It is a two-storey, masonry building with a gable roof. Palace's decorative gables, a 17-meter tower (which used to be a treasury) and arcade cloisters draw attention. Loggia has interesting decorations made from pearls and egg-and-dart with mascarons in keystones. Over the cloisters there are richly decorated pinnacles.

An octagonal chapel, with a rich decoration, from the second half of the 19th century adheres to the main building. Over the chapel entrance you can see the Grzymała coat of arms and inside you can see frescoes with the figures of saints and a stucco decoration presenting the coats of arms.

The Palace in Poddebice was built in the time period between 1610 and 1617. The person who initiated the construction, and at the same time the Palace's first owner, was a Rawa voivode Zygmunt Grudzinski.
