Building of the object is accredited to Osvětim princes or to Mikołaj Strzale c. Kotwicz (the 1st half of 15th c.). The oldest gothic appearance from the 1st half of 15th c. consisted of the only dwelling tower and some wooden buildings surrounded by an earth mound and a shallow moat. During the reign of the Komorovsky family, it had undergone several serious visual changes. At the end of 15th c., it had become a defensive fortress (four dwelling towers with a courtyard, ramparts with four corner towers). Since January 2005, the Old chateau has been housing a Town Museum in Żywiec.
