The white manor building is located on the steep banks of Pededze river.  On the first half of 19th century, baron Otto von Volf built this manor in classical style. There is a triangular fronton in the centre of building. Unusual detail was the black winding frieze painted on the white building walls. The manor house has an exposition about history of Litene. There is a Latvian Semi-precious Stone Workshop in the stables of manors complex where gems and semi-precious stones which are found in Latvia are made into are jewellery, candle holders, etc. Roads from Gulbene, Balvi and Aluksne leads to Litene. Litene is on the very highway, but some beauty is here, so do not miss it! This is just a small bend that does not take much time. All sights are close to each other and are walkable.
