Photographer's Note

At the height of number 71 is the set of three buildings known as the "Three Sisters", as opposed to the "Three Brothers" of Riga.

The house that is on the corner of Calle Tolli, the first of the three, is the most interesting: the facade is the original one, from the 15th century.

These belonged to a rich merchant who built them for his three daughters. In an attempt to give his daughters in marriage, in which it was for his eldest daughter, he made large and beautiful doors and windows to attract potential suitors, in the house of the middle daughter they were smaller, and to the house of the most Young, he has left her without doors.

Currently, these buildings are the most luxurious hotel in the city. The medieval decoration is completely preserved inside.

A la altura del número 71 está el conjunto de los tres edificios conocidos como las "Tres Hermanas", contrapuestas a los "Tres Hermanos" de Riga.

La casa que hace esquina con la calle Tolli, la primera de las tres, es la más interesante: la fachada es la original, del siglo XV.

Estas pertenecian a un rico mercader que las construyó para sus tres hijas. En un intento por dar a sus hijas en matrimonio, en la que era para su hija mayor, hizo puertas y ventanas grandes y hermosas para atraer a posibles pretendientes, en la casa de la hija mediana fueron más pequeñas, y a la casa de la mas joven, la ha dejado sin puertas.

Actualmente, estos edificios son el hotel más lujoso de la ciudad. En el interior está totalmente conservada la decoración medieval.
