These three lovely residential houses are fine examples of the architecture you’re likely to find across Riga, which date back to around the 15th century. The reason why this collection of buildings received their name as the Three Brothers, is because legend has it that they were built by three men from the same family, when this street used to be inhabited by craftsmen during medieval times.

Nice and colorful buildings that are definitely worth seeing. They were build in different architectural styles and they are connected to each other. The legend is false though- the brothers couldn't build them because it is physically impossible. The difference between the youngest and the oldest house is more than 200 years!

Tre fratelli costruirono tre case molto simili... No, la leggenda si sbaglia: questi tre edifici, in effetti simili tra loro, risalgono a secoli diversi! Il primo è del XV secolo, il secondo del XVII e il terzo del XVIII. Poco importa: si tratta di tre delle case più belle e colorate di Riga, ai numeri civici 17, 19 e 21 di Maza Pils. L'edificio di mezzo oggi ospita il Museo Lettone di Architettura.
