Lielstraupe Castle

Lielstraupe Castle is one of the rare medieval castles in Latvia, which has lasted until today.

The rebirth of Lielstraupe Castle through the centuries has been ensured by an ancient Baltic-German family von Rosens, who managed the castle, with small breaks, until 1939. For the last 50 years there was Straupe Narcological Hospital in this building, but from the beginning of 2018 the castle is managed by Pārgauja County Municipality, which has found a way to open the castle for tourists. Lielstraupe Castle is the only castle in Latvia, which includes a church in the construction volume. The journey through both buildings is an exciting story about the time periods – from ancient times to this day.
