Karolen in Kirchspiel Karolen, Kreis Werro

The manor was established in 1741. It has belonged to the von Delwigs, von Brüggens and von Grotes. A stately two-storey main building (from the 18th century, complemented in the 19th and 20th centuries) was damaged.

Several outbuildings have been preserved, including a stylish Neo-Gothic bailiff’s house, reminding one of a medieval fortress. Near the centre of the manor, one can find the family cemetery of the von Grote family and a Neo-Gothic funeral chapel (now in ruins).

By the historical distribution the manor was in Karula Parish in Võrumaa County. By the present administrative distribution it belongs to the Karula Municipality in Valgamaa County.
