Ethnographic farmstead „Ielīcas”

Vidzemes farmstead “Ielīcas” is a state protected cultural heritage monument, which its revival has begun in 2006. “Ielīcas” is located in Valkas municipality in Vijciema parish.


The layout of the buildings is the yard system, typical of northern Vidzeme. The buildings have preserved many ancient construction details – stone corner support foundation, plastered round timber log walls with intersecting corners, log pediments, a constricted construction roof, round timber floor and ceiling. In the construction of a number of buildings, only one tool was used – an axe.


“Ielīcas” reflects a 300 – 400 year long period in the development of Latvian construction traditions, because the buildings which you can see in nowadays were built from 18 century II half till 19 century end.


Location: Vijciema parish, "Ielīcas".
