   The original castle with a separately standing prismatic tower and connected with the castle by a protective wall, was built around the beginning of the 14th century. Jan of Šelmberk and then Kunrát Krajíř of Krajk built between both of the mentioned parts late Gothic palaces, so that by 1516 Hrubý Rohozec achieved its present ground plan. After 1600, the Vartenberks changed it by raising and partial rebuilding it into a Renaissance manor.
   In 1621 it was bought by Albrecht of Valdštejn, later it passed over to Desfours' lineage of French origin, who possessed it until 1945. After 1822 the Czech architect, Jan F. Joendl, provided the castle with a Classicist rustic pargeting and modernized its interior. Later adaptations in the middle of 19th century gave the manor its present appearance.
   In the interior there is the outstanding dining room, others outline the trends of dwelling and clothing from Renaissance up to Czech Art Nouveau.
