Purdi manor (Noistfer) has a history that goes back to at least 1560. The current building is a baroque manor house, built in circa 1760-1770 by the von Baranoff family. Some baroque interiors still survive. Additions to the building were made in the 19th century. Several annexes belonging to the estate are still preserved, notably the granary, as well as the baroque burial chapel of the Ungern-Sternberg family, who were the last feudal landlords of the estate.

Purdi , Paide vald, Järvamaa 58.994646, 25.620578 ‎58° 59' 40.73", 25° 37' 14.08" Современный предшественник мызы Пурди, находился в Оятагузе, в трёх километрах от центральной части мызы на запад. Здесь находилась мыза ордена, которая сначала принадлежала Таллинну, позже пайдескому городскому фогту. Во время ливонской войны, 7 июня 1560 года, русские войска подожгли мызу Оятагузе и она сгорела до тла. В послевоенное время, эти земли перешли во владение к Буртам, которые построили новый господский дом на месте старого. Немецкое название мызы Нойсфер, стали использовать в качестве исторического названия местности. Эстонское название Пурди происходит от фамилии одних из владельцев мызы. В 17 веке, Бурты построили каменный господский дом, который, предположительно, был разрушен в годы Северной войны, когда совершались грабительские набеги на всю эту территорию. В 18 веке, мыза перешла во владение к дворянской семье Бараноффа. В 1760-70 годах Бараноффы построили одноэтажный каменный господский дом в стиле барокко, который сохранился до наших дней. Построенный в то время господский дом имел щипковую крышу, а также невысокие пристройки. Центральная часть здания датируется 17 веком. Неподалёку от господского дома находится ряд хозяйственных построек 18 века – амбар, конюшня, экипажная, дом управляющего и дом для прислуги – часть из них сохранилась, от некоторых остались лишь развалины. Из мызы к церкви Анна ведёт 2-километровая аллея. До 2000 года на мызе функционировала школа, на сегодняшний день, мыза находится в частном владении. В юго-западном направлении, на расстоянии 1,5 км, неподалёку от дороги, ведущей к церкви Анна, находится часовня с волютной крышей.

Palazzo Colonna

The Palazzo Colonna is a palatial block of buildings built in part over ruins of an old Roman Serapeum, and has belonged to the prestigious Colonna family for over twenty generations.

The first part of the palace dates from the 13th century, and tradition holds that the building hosted Dante in his visit to Rome. The first documentary mention notes that the property hosted Cardinal Giovanni and Giacomo Colonna in the 13th century. It was also home to Cardinal Oddone Colonna before he ascended to the papacy as Martin V (1417–1431).

With his passing, the palace was sacked during feuds, and the main property passed into the hands of the Della Rovere family. It returned to the Colonna family when Marcantonio I Colonna married Lucrezia Gara Franciotti Della Rovere, the niece of pope Julius II. The Colonna"s alliance to the Habsburg power, likely protected the palace from looting during the Sack of Rome (1527).

Starting with Filippo Colonna (1578–1639) many changes have refurbished and create a unitary complex around a central garden. Architects including Girolamo Rainaldi and Paolo Marucelli labored on specific projects. Only in the 17th and 18th centuries were the main facades completed. Much of this design was completed by Antonio del Grande (including the grand gallery), and Girolamo Fontana (decoration of gallery). In the 18th century, the long low facade designed by Nicola Michetti with later additions by Paolo Posi with taller corner blocks (facing Piazza Apostoli) was constructed recalls earlier structures resembling a fortification.

The main gallery (completed 1703) and the masterful Colonna art collection was acquired after 1650 by both the cardinal Girolamo I Colonna and his nephew the Connestabile Lorenzo Onofrio Colonna and includes works by Lorenzo Monaco, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Palma the Elder, Salviati, Bronzino, Tintoretto, Pietro da Cortona, Annibale Carracci (painting of The Beaneater), Guercino, Francesco Albani, Muziano and Guido Reni. Ceiling frescoes by Filippo Gherardi, Giovanni Coli, Sebastiano Ricci, and Giuseppe Bartolomeo Chiari celebrate the role of Marcantonio II Colonna in the battle of Lepanto (1571). The gallery is open to the public on Saturday mornings.

The older wing of the complex known as the Princess Isabelle"s apartments, but once housing Martin V"s library and palace, contains frescoes by Pinturicchio, Antonio Tempesta, Crescenzio Onofri, Giacinto Gimignani, and Carlo Cesi. It contains a collection of landscapes and genre scenes by painters like Gaspard Dughet, Caspar Van Wittel (Vanvitelli), and Jan Brueghel the Elder.

Along with the possessions of the Doria-Pamphilij and Pallavacini-Rospigliosi families, this is one of the largest private art collections in Rome.
