The church is one of the most characteristic samples of Baroque style in Latgale. The first church was built in 1580-1590 by Miķelis de Brunavs, and it was wooden. The current stone church was constructed from 1755 to 1767, built according to the sketches of the Italian architect Antonio Parako. The altarpiece “St. Ludvik Leaves for Crusade” represents the artistic culmination of the interior. It is one of the most valuable art findings of the last years. The masterpiece gives a wonderful lighting effect. There are two portraits of the 2nd half of the 18th century made by the Italian painter Filipo Castaldi: one is the portrait of Count Konstantīns Ludvigs Plāters and the second - Countess Augusta Plāters (born as Oginska), who were the founders of the church. The church features a Baroque pulpit, seven confessionals (middle of the 18th century and later), paintings in the side altars, among the most notable the following must be mentioned – St. Jāzeps, St. Antonijs, St. Vincents, St. Juris, St. Stanislavs and others. Talking about Krāslava Catholic Church and its significance for the region, one should pay attention to the martyr St. Donat’s relics that attract numerous Pilgrims making Krāslava town the second most significant pilgrimage place in Latgale after Aglona Catholic basilica. In 1790 thanks to the meditation of Pope Pia VI the holiday of St. Donat with the remission of people’s sins was proclaimed that it is celebrated on the first Sunday after St.Peter’s Day.

Rusonas pagasts, Riebiņu nov., LV-5329
Castle mound of Šņepsti, the Large hill, is located on the left side of Preiļi - Aglona road (when going from Preiļi). The hill that resembles a prolonged bread loaf, is 19 meters high. In the South-West side it was fortified with ditches, between which an ascend to the castle mound plateau was located. The plateau and the South descend have been cultivated from ancient times, that is why the dark black cultural layer, that covered the upside of the castle mound, has been mixed and ploughed downwards. The castle mound was destroyed largely by those who were seeking antiques. The local farmers for some Bogomoļeca father in Jaunā manor would carry lots and lots of antiques they found in the castle mound in order to get money. Latvian History musem still holds two oval 5th century lighter stones and other antiques. Some items found in the castle mound currently can be viewed in a musem in Vilnius, Lithuania. A tale tells, that there were two doors on the sides of the castle bound. Behind it a young girl sat with a black dog by her feet. The girl had to collect berries from a thorn bush for seven years. In other tales it was said, that she had lended her money for the local people for some time. One of them didn't pay it back on time and he was tormented be devils.
