[ENG: About spot] The "Three Brothers" are an example of Medieval residential structures in Riga - three buildings that were put up on very narrow strips of land. The facades and interiors provide a textbook example of the development of architecture over the course of time. Maza Pils iela 17 is the oldest stone residential building in Riga (late 15th, early 16th century), and its distinctive chimney has been preserved. The facade is accepted with a step-type pediment and a Gothic niche. Number 19 was put up in 1646, while Number 21 took on its appearance in the late 17th century. One of the walls in the interior yard of the structure contains the oldest known city emblem of Riga, along with some stone portals

The building in Maza Pils iela 19 gained its present look in 1646. The facade of the building has some features of Dutch mannerism (restored after the drawing of J.C. Brotze dated 1785). The layout of the first floor is similar to that of the previous building. There is a spacious room with large checked windows above the low hall; some rooms are also located in the yard side of the second floor and in the attic. In 1746 a stone portal was added to the building.

The backyards of all three buildings were united during the restoration, and stone portals, as well as the Riga Coat of Arms, were immured into the walls of the yard.

[LAT: Par vietu] "Tris bralu" pagalms ir Mazaja Pils iela, kur šobrid atrodas Arhitekturas muzejs. Pagalma sienas iemureti unikali buvelementi, kas savulaik burtiski izvilkti no peckara drupam.
Tur apskatams visvecakais lidz musdienam saglabajies gerbonis Latvija. Tas ir akmeni kalts Rigas pilsetas gerbonis, kas darinats 1554. gada. Uz ta attelots Livonijas ordena krusts, divas vertikali novietotas atslegas un atvertos vartos lauvas galva – Rigas iedzivotaju drošsirdibas simbols. Ši gerbona celš lidz "Tris bralu" pagalmam bijis garš un sarežgits. Sakotneji tas tika gatavots iebuvešanai Rigas pilsetas svaru maja tirgus laukuma. Velak eka tika izmantota ka ierocu noliktava, bet pec tam nonaca Rigas Zilas gvardes ipašuma. 1941. gada nams nodega, bet drupas, kuras pec kara novaca, tika atrasts šis gerbonis un iemurets "Tris bralu" pagalma siena.
Vel viens unikals buvelements, kas saglabašanas nolukos iebuvets Mazas Pils ielas 19. nama siena, ir Sarnavu gimenes gerbonis. Tas ataino tris varpas vairoga zem brunu cepures. Gerbonis piederejis dzimtai, kuras ipašuma eka bijusi lidz 19. gadsimta vidum. Sarnavi bijuši turigi maiznieki, bet pedejie parstavji, kas mitinajušies nama, vairs nekalpoja šim amatam un nebija ari vairs tik turigi.
Tacu tas vel nav viss, ko glaba Rigas vecako namu pagalms. Blakus pilsetas gerbonim ir iemurets akmeni kalts barokals durvju portals, kas izgatavots 1741. gada. Tas rotajis eku Melngalvju iela. Peckara gados, kad tika novaktas sagrauto eku drupas, portals tika nogadats un iemurets siena.
