The surviving section of the castle seen from the north. The stubs of the walls of the missing section are visible.


This castle was built at the end of the fourteenth century or in the early fifteenth century. Half of this building has been destroyed and only the southeast section now survives. The remaining castle has a plan that measures 9 metres by 6 metres and is three storeys high. In the east corner there's a turret with the staircase to each floor. The first floor has a fine fireplace, decorative carving on the windows and a toilet. The upper floor has a vaulted roof.
It seems there were two more castles in the surroundings, hence the name of Threecastles.
