In 1380 the bishop had a castle built within the town fortifications, which became a seat of Warmia Chapter bishops. Burnt in a fire in 1594 the castle was soon restored remaining the Chapter's property. In 1826 an evangelic school was built in Barczewo, partly in the castle area. Remains of the castle (vaulting of the cellars and sparse fragments of southern wall) are at Nowowiejska 9 Street.
