Annenieki Evangelical Lutheran Church

In 1711, Annenieki Evangelical Lutheran Church was built in the place where local people had been buried after the plague pandemic. At the beginning the church was built of wood. The current stone church with a seating capacity of 300 people was built in the middle of the 18th century. It served as a subsidiary church of Jaunpils.
