Bošany is very old village with important archeological finds from several periods. It is mentioned already in 12th century during the danger from Turks. In the middle of the 16th century they started to build four winged manor house with corner towers. The construction was never finished and the third wing was never built. The bastions are in polygon shape. The overall architecture is Renaissance style with some fragments of the original stucco still visible. During the 17th century the manor house was remodeled and in 1776 rebuilt with new stairwell and hallway with idea of being a strong anti Turkish fortress. It is located in center of Bošany.
