Long Description:
CZ: Breznice, puvodne gotická tvrz rodu Buzicu ze 13. století, v 16.-17. století prestavena na renesancní zámek Jirím Lokšanem z Lokšan, tajemníkem ceského krále Ferdinanda I. Z roku 1558 pochází tzv. Lokšanská knihovna, která je nejstarší renesancní knihovnou v Cechách. Barokní prestavby se zámku príliš nedotkly, nejvýznamejší úpravou je prístavba ranne barokní kaple Panny Marie od Carlo Luraga.
