For many years, the Lower Panemune manor was sunk into the oblivion of historical memory. Thanks to the research carried out in the last couple of years and the experienced specialists working on this object, its glorious history is being revived. The course of research revealed the extraordinary past of this manor and its historical and architectural significance for the history of the state of Lithuania. It can be assumed that the manor was founded on the site of a former Teutonic castle, archaeological findings date back to the 14th - 17th centuries, and from the 16th century. Lower Panemune belonged to the Sapiega family. It is the oldest manor in Šakiai district. The manor house is located on the high slope of the Nemunas bank, between the two mounds of Žemaios Panemunes. The manor palace is surrounded by a huge apple garden, after 650 old fruit trees bloom in the spring, the palace is drowned in a sea of white blossoms.

Currently, the Lower Panemune manor is not restored, but it is open to people interested in history. It organizes educational tours that encourage people to look back at history and preserve its memory for future generations. During the excursion, visitors are introduced to the history of the manor, walking in the ruins of the palace only with protective helmets, visiting the cellars of the manor.
