MEŽĪTE HILLFORT

Nature / landscape

Mežīte Hillfort boasts of outstanding landscape and reaches high above all the other parts of the ancient archaeological complex, such as the Hill of Idols (Elku kalns), several ancient burial grounds, and two worship stones – the cup-marked stones. Once, there was an ancient town stretching over an area of almost three hectares around the hillfort. The archaeological excavations at Mežīte Hillfort supported the presence of ancient Couronians and Vendians – inhabitants of northern Courland.
