Sõmerpalu (Võro: Sõmmõrpalo, German: Sommerpahlen) is a small borough (Estonian: alevik) in Võru County, Estonia. It is the administrative centre of Sõmerpalu Parish.[1]

Sõmerpalu manor[edit]

The history of the local manor goes back to at least 1544, when there was a fortified manor, a so-called "vassal castle", at approximately the same site as the present-day manor house. During the Livonian War, however, this building was destroyed, and a new manor house was built some time after this. The present house was erected in the 1860s in the then-popular neo-Gothic style.[2]
