  • The construction of Kastela-type castle in the 13th century was started by the Grand Master Dietrich von Groningen. The original palace was a hallway, corner towers and a wooden building in the yard. It served as a threshold for meeting the Livonian Order and the Bishop of Kurzeme. In the 15th century near the castle wall is erected a living cabinet with basements and galleries. In the yard above the gate is partially preserved plaster with decorative decoration in the technique of Sgrafito.
