KOERICH

Wirich I, Lord Of Koerich and Seneschal of Luxembourg erected this castle at the end of the 12th century in Romanesque style. It was enlarged by Godefroid of Koerich in 1304. The castle was originally surrounded by a moat and had a fortified entrance gate. Gilles of Autel and Koerich turned the stronghold into a more comfortable dwelling and added a chapel around the year 1380. In 1580 the new owner Jacques de Raville demolished part of the castle and added two wings in Renaissance style. The south wing was altered in Baroque style in the year 1728. After the the Ravilles dynasty ended in the second part of the 18th century the castle stood empty and started to fall into ruin. The last private owner Pierre Flammang carried out some essential repairs in 1950. Now the castle is in the hands of the State.
