Three Brothers

The oldest preserved residential complex in its original form in Riga is the trio of houses "Three Brothers" in Mazā Pils iela.

Each house was built for a different purpose and at a different time. While the oldest house (No. 17) has been in place since 1490, the other two were built in the 17th century. The middle one in 1646 and the last one (No. 21) towards the end of the century.

The houses have not undergone significant change since the 17th century, only their facade has been renovated and the interior remains in its original form.

Today, part of the premises is used by the Museum of Architecture and the National Centre for the Preservation of Cultural Monuments.
