Beautiful interior with wonderful frescoes, paintings and sculptures. Lots of interesting details, of course it is an important sacred place, a sanctuary. It breathes the history of this land. I highly recommend visiting. The kindest lady guide colorfully tells and brings closer the old times. ko

I remember that there was a thunderstorm and the roof was leaking right in the place where I was sitting, even the light went out. It was just before St. Francis' Day where the priest came out with the initiative to bless the animals. I was also another time and even when I was a child. It is the main object in Legnickie Pole and, in my opinion, it deserves to be commemorated to some extent.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
