The Burtnieki Manor is one of the most impressive and important artifacts of historical events.
Burtnieki Manor house was built in the 17th century on the foundations of the ruined order castle on the steep shore of lake Burtnieki and was once a 3-storey building. Unfortunately, it has not survived to this day. During the independence of Latvia, a two-year agricultural school was opened in the manor house building in 1921, but in 1944 the building was burned down when the German army retreated. In 1969, the ruins were removed and a culture house was built in their place.
All the manor houses were mostly built in the classicist style of the 19th century, although over time some of them have been rebuilt. The manager’s house, stables, carriage, two servants’ houses and other farm buildings are located outside the park. Nowadays, from the park side, you can see only the former barn with a neo-baroque wooden extension – a tea pavilion. The ruins of the former gardener’s house and the castle ruins of the Livonian Order are also partially preserved.
Take a stroll through the beautiful 19th-century eclectic manor park to experience Italian Renaissance features and landscaped garden features.
The Vīsrags Nature Trail starts in the territory of the park, which is suitable for cognitive recreation in nature for the whole family.
