      Castle Tarvastu - this Order Castle, which was built around the XIV century. The castle was located on the hillside, which skirts the river. On the north side there is a water mill, which had a strategic importance - it was an obstacle in the path enemies and to defend the entrance to the castle. Next to the mill was a tower, with views of the surrounding area. During the Livonian War, the fortress was replaced by more than one owner.
