Īvande Manor, also called Lielīvande Manor (Schloß Groß-Iwanden) was built in the second half of the 19th century according to a design by architect Teodors Zeilers. It was severely damaged by fire in 1905, but later repaired in 1912-1913. Unusual to estates in Latvia, an earlier 18th century manor house still stands nearby.

Cháteau Comtal

The Château Comtal (Count’s Castle) is a medieval castle within the Cité of Carcassonne, the largest city in Europe with its city walls still intact. The Château Comtal has a strong claim to be called a 'Cathar Castle'. When the Catholic Crusader army arrived in 1209 they first attacked Raymond-Roger Trencavel's castrum at Bèziers and then moved on to his main stronghold at Carcassonne.

The castle with rectangular shape is separated from the city by a deep ditch and defended by two barbicans. There are six towers curtain walls.

The castle was restored in 1853 by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.
