tLokalizacja zamku na mapie Polskihe first record of a stone structure in Bolestraszyce goes back to 1639. Its size and shape cannot be easily defined as in different historic documents it was called a manor, a fortalice or a castle. It was erected probably in the 16th century by the Bolestraszycki family (previous family name - Świętopełk). In the mid-16th century Zofia Bolestraszycka was married to Tomasz Krzysztof Drohojowski and gave the Bolestraszyce estates to him as her dowry.
The fortalice was pulled down in the first half of the 19th century. Some time later the 16-th-century remains of the fortalice foundation were used to build a chapel there. The original vaulting has survived in the chapel's basement.
