DIŽGABALA HILLOCK AND TAVERN “SPĒLMAŅU KROGS” IN ALSUNGA

Nature / landscape

The origin of the town Alsunga is linked to Couronians, although nowadays it is deemed the cultural space of Suiti. In the town centre, a Couronian hillfort – Dižgabala Hillock emerges on the bank of Lake Dzirnezers. Alsunga once belonged to Bandava, which was ruled by the Couronian king Lamekin, and the settlement was mentioned in sources of the 13th century. Next to the hillfort, the tavern “Spēlmaņu krogs” serves traditional Couronian dishes according to generation-old recipes.
