Ruins of Rõngu Vassal Stronghold
Visit the park of the Rõngu Vassal Stronghold if you are interested in ancient strongholds. It is believed that construction of the castle-type stronghold started in 1340. The stronghold belonged to the Tödwen family in the Middle Ages, then passed on to the Jesuits who turned it into their centre in Southern Estonia. The army of the order destroyed the stronghold in 1558. Part of the stronghold’s wall and the main entrance have survived until today.
