Rundale Palace

This is the List of palaces and manor houses in Latvia built after the 16th century. Palaces and manors which are now part of the Zemgale region were then part of the Selonia region, and therefore are listed as such. This list does not include castles, which are listed in a separate article. And as there are more than 1000 manor houses and palaces in Latvia, this list is incomplete.
