As early as 1792, a wall church was built that is externally relatively simple, similar to many other churches in Kurzeme.

The Valtaic Lutheran Church is remarkable for its beautiful and elaborately designed 15 stained glass, commissioned in Italy by Baron von Manteifelis in the early 20 th century after Wilhelm Purvich's throws. There are 4 stained-glass displays around the altar, which convey the virtues of the knights – courage, piety, charity and charity. The other stained-glass displays events from the New Testament.

One window cost 700 golden rubles, compared to one cow cost 3 golden rubles.

The church has a luxurious classicist-style interior with rococo elements. The altar painting “Golgat” (1833) is written by Johan Leberecht Egink.

Valtaiķi church is 5 kilometres away from Kazdanga castle and even if nowadays territorially it is in Kuldīga County, it is very connected with Kazdanga. As soon as in 1792 a stone church was built, from the outside it was very simple and similar to other churches in Courland. The church of Valtaiķi is outstanding because of its beautiful and detailed stained glass, which were ordered from Italy by baron von Manteifelis in 20th century after sketches made by Vilhelms Purvītis. There are four stained glass windows around the altar, which tell a story about warrior’s three manners – bravery, godliness, compassion and charity. The other stained glass windows depict events from the New Testament. In the bottom part of the windows there are Manteifeļi and their wife emblem which depict the family’s history.
