Medieval manorial farm ‘Rychvald’
‘Rychvald’ manorial farm dates to the 14th and 15th centuries. This administrative centre of the domain was probably administered by a feoffee (vassal) for the Poor Clare monastery in Panenský Týnec. The site includes the remains of perimeter walls, a three-compartment house, a granary and other farm buildings.
