Pakruojis mansion is located 2 km. from Pakruojis, on the right bank of the Kruoja River. It was first mentioned in written sources in 1531. Pakruojis Manor is an architectural example of the late classicism (the only one in Pakruojis region), the largest surviving complex (ensemble) of 26 manor buildings in Lithuania. The oldest buildings of the estate are the pub and the spirits and beer brewery. Most of the estate buildings are of the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century. Most of them were built by the owners of the manor von Ropai. 48.2 hectares covering Manor has 43 buildings, surrounded by a fence built up in 1840 and more than 150-year-old park, where about 26 kinds of trees grow. The most valuable buildings of the ensemble are the main building with a portico in the centre of the ensemble and an example of a Roman aqueduct rarely encountered in Europe, a dolomite arch bridge-dam built in 1821 (refurbished in 2001).
