          28. Customs warehouse           

          On Torņa iela 1 at the outer wall of the city’s defensive wall there is located the former spacious customs storehouse (1828 - 1830) – one-floor building in Empire style stretching 135 m long. The middle-part projection and elevation is notable in its monotone solid building. The smooth side of facade is revived by using a rhythmic grouping of doors and windows aisles covered by arches, and a splendid triglyph zone. At the end of the previous century the building was restored and an art exhibition hall was arranged in one of its parts.
