Apriķi Manor (Latvian: Apriķu muižas pils) is a manor house in Laža parish, Aizpute municipality, in the historical region of Courland, in western Latvia. Though originally completed in 1742, a three-story octagonal Neo-Gothic tower was added at the east end during the second half of the 19th century. The building currently houses the Apriķi primary school and the Apriķi regional museum, which includes an exhibit on Finnish soldier and politician Carl Gustaf Mannerheim who lived at the manor for a time in the early 20th century.
