Surrounded by a romantic park and ancient manor buildings, Cesvaine Palace, a sculpture carved in stone, raises its towers to the sky. The palace of Adolf von Wulf is considered to be one of the brightest architectural achievements of the 2nd half of the 19th century. It is the masterpiece of eclecticism that unites architecture, sculpture, metalwork and painting.

Cesvaine Palace is a national architectural monument and since 1997 it has been included into the list of European Cultural Heritage.

Within the action "Visit Castles and Palaces in Latvia" the palace was awarded the honorary title of a "Dream Palace".

The palace was built between 1893 and 1896. Since 1919 there was a school housed in the palace but in 2002 a fire destroyed the roof of the palace. A new secondary school was built in Cesvaine and the palace is gradually recovering its initial appearance. In 2003 the roof of the left wing of the palace was restored, the tower of the palace was restored in 2006. Restoration works continue.
