The manor of Bečov

   The castle above the river Teplá was built around the end of the 13th century. The greatest development of Bečov occurred in the period between 1495 - 1557, when the castle belonged to the noble family of Pluhas of Rabštejn. The settlement in front of the castle obtained its present appearance in the year 1752, when the mighty protective tower was replaced by the Baroque manor, the surroundings also went through substantial change.


   At present the original castle is closed. The manor under it has recently restored interiors (e.g. the Spanish and Tapestry Hall, library, the St. Peter's Chapel), equipped with furniture from the 18th and 19th centuries, some pieces date even farther back. The Romanesque St. Maur reliquary has outstanding historical value.
