The complex is located in the center of the Cēsis, where in a small area a number different historical areas intertwine. Medieval castle was built by the Livonian Brothers of the Sword and the Teutonic order. In the middle Ages it was one of the most important footholds for the Teutonic Order in the Baltics, but now – most impressive and well preserved castle ruins in Latvia. The buildings of manor complex with May and Castle Park manifest the Romanticism movement of the 18th and 19th century. In the central manor house there is the Cesis History and Art Museum, where after the restoration, the exhibition of history and interior "Cēsis-Latvian History Symbol" is arranged. Guided tours, medieval activity center and medieval kitchen garden from 16th century also are offered for visitors.
