Igate Castle

Igate Castle was built in 1880 in the neo-Renaissance style. It is the second best-known castle in the Limbaži region, and it advisable to include it on the same tourist route as Bīriņu Castle because both are located on the Limbaži- Ragana road. Igate Castle has a different architectural "face".

Renaissance forms dominate in the architecture. The colour scheme of the castle is subdued, with no excessive ornaments. The square tower on one side of the castle adds to the solemn mood. In 1934, the Latvian Association for Helping Children bought the main building of the castle and established a boarding-school there, calling it "Igate’s Rest".

At present, the castle operates as a guest-house, offering premises for holding seminars and conferences, festivities, banquets, anniversary celebrations and weddings.

The castle has also a sauna, a swimming pool with a cascade and "The Mill Pub".
