This may be an ancient cult object, and today it is a little hill in the dunes that is a bit larger than other local hills.  It is said that a church once sank into the dune.  This tale suggests that there was a Christian or pagan prayer place here at one time. (Source: Roja TIC)

The cosy land road along the sea is 1 km long, and it offers a look at the wonderful aspects of the village.  To the right are rocks from the sea, as well as miniature flower gardens on the seashore with tempting benches and overturned boats.  On the side of the shore is the Kaltene library, which is more than 100 years ago.  It was initially a summer home for Baron Nolken, and it was built in 1899.  Later it was rebuilt several times and took on new roles.  An elementary school was installed here in 1926, after which it became a club and then, in 1992, a primary school once again.  The path runs along beautiful seashore homesteads, among which one can find the former homes of old fishermen and ship builders such as Burliņi.  At one time, the Žulnieki portage at Smilgas was the site of  the kiln of blacksmith Pēteris Valdemārs.  He was the main blacksmith for ships between Kaltene and Upesgrīve. (Source: Roja TIC)

The castle hill is an island in the reservoir of the Pļaviņas hydroelectric power plant, and it can be accessed by boat.  The ancient Selonian castle hill was settled several times between the 6th and the 12th century.  This was the political and military centre of the Selonian region.  In 1373, the Livonian Order built a stone castle on the hill, as it did on many other ancient hillocks.  The castle was sacked in 1704 during the Great Northern War.  Remnants of a square tower, a guard room and the 12 m embankment that once protected the castle are all that survive.  Approximately 300 m to the North of the Sēlpils castle hill is Oliņkalns hill, which is underwater.

 The Lašu castle hill is 0.2 km from the Vecumnieki-Ilūkste road at Laši. It is an ancient Selonian castle hill, and it was populated between the 1st millennium BC and the 10th or 12th century. Very little remains of the old Veclaši (Tiesenhausen) Estate, which had an impressive mansion designed in the Neo-Gothic style in the late 19th century. What remains are an ancillary building, the foundations of the mansion, fragments of the gates, and a park. Until 1920, the estate belonged to the Pshezdzetski dynasty, and before that it was owned by the Tiesenhausen and Fittinghoff dynasties. Before visiting the location, look for photographs of the old mansion on the Internet. Sadly, the important cultural monument has not experienced any major improvements over the past 20 years.

Cesis Castle complex is a place where the past meets the future. 
The medieval castle provides an opportunity to get into the 800 years distant past, to climb up the Western tower with candle lanterns, observe the castle garden and park, climb down to the dungeon, as well as to see how the blacksmith is making Latgalian ornaments in his Ancient jewellery smithy. 
Right next to the ruins stands the New Castle, an 18th century castle manor house. Now it is Cesis History and Art Museum, which details the events that occured up to 800 years ago, stores the very first Latvian flag,  the first coins of the city, the Biedermeier era style interior and the only historical facial reconstruction of a Livonian woman who lived in the Medieval castle. A great ending of the visit is Lademacher tower, from where you can see a breathtaking view of the city. 
The park at the lowland of the castle’s territory was set up as a family garden. It was created by the New Castle owner Carl Gustav von Sievers. The park is like a time machine, a shelter from all the surroundings, where one can enjoy some peace of mind. It is a place where everyone feels something special, receives an indescribable pleasure just by relaxing next to the pond. 
A bit further, right next to the city center is the May park, an essential component of the urban landscape, with its illuminated fountains and black swans that are living there. It is a great place where you can relax with your family, because the park also has a children’s playground with more activities.

Approximately 200 metres to the North-East from the Liv People's Centre, along the Mazirbe-Košrags road, there is the Seppes homestead.  The little log granary was built in the 1920s and 1930s by an Estonian fisherman and builder who arrived in Mazirbe from Saaremaa.  He was called Jēkabs Jaga.  On the other side of the road is the Kalši home, which was built in the early 20th century.  It has been restored, but the bricks that were made in a local kiln were preserved for its walls.
