[info ENG] 1301 was the starting point of Jaunpils castle building mentioned in historical sources; the master of Livonian order at that time was Gotfried fon Roga (1298-1306). The castle was a helping hand to the comturey of Dobele. The castle had stone walls which were rendered and in some places are up to 2.1m thick. Jaunpils castle served as fortress and residence for a small military unit, order’s monks, and aged knights belonging to the Livonian order. The castle was surrounded by water moats and the only castle entrance was a lifting bridge and vaulted gate.
At 17th Century a medieval castle-fortress has been transformed into the residence of wealthy nobility (in the hands of the family of Reke). The shape Jaunpils castle had in the 17th century remained unchanged till the revolution in 1905, when the castle was burnt down by revolutionists and in one night’s time the castle which had proudly stood more than five centuries was completely destroyed.
During the period of freedom (from 1919) in Latvia the castle building was used by livestock breeding school.
In order to run management of the castle the local authority (p/a)“Jaunpils” was established in 2003. Within the structure of this local government, there are such units as museum, culture centre, library and SIA “Jaunpils pils”, which deals with hotels, organizes excursions, banquets, and other activities.
