See Cesis Medieval Castle, one of the best-preserved ruined castles in Latvia with a robust stone facade. Start the tour at the information center, where you can choose to go with a guide or by yourself. You'll receive a copy of the map and one candle to help you explore the castle. Once inside, look for the old dungeon, deep inside the earth, accessed by a narrow ladder. Walk through the mysterious hallways, the medieval porch, and the attic of the castle tower.

  • Good place; architecture; park; fresh air. Suitable for family walking; historical place. Nature; views.  more »
  • In the castle and the adjoining villa of the Counts (which last inhabited the complex) is truly to see and the visit is worth the ride from Riga. Having said that-if like me you are over 60 and not really agile-forget the lantern that offer you at the entrance and instead wear good sneakers and bring a flashlight or cellphone to face the very narrow spiral staircases in the dark of the Castle (First council), Second Council: Prepare yourselves on the order of the sword holders (order similar to that of the Templars); There is a lot of talk about it in the museum but we do not understand the historical evolution in the exposed panels. Thirdly: I point out that in the courtyard of the castle there is a vegetable garden with plants with seeds (medieval? The signs say yes) recovered among the ruins. Good visit!

  • Great place to visit, especially in the evening during winter when it is starting to get dark. Giving out lanterns is a great feature, and going to the very top of the towers gives a great view of cesis.
  • Nice place to walk around. It located in the center of Cesis, and near this there are beautiful park with small lake
