SABILE HILLFORT

Nature / landscape

The origin of the small town of Sabile in the picturesque valley of the River Abava goes back to a hillfort inhabited about 1,000 years ago. Livonians were among the first to dwell on the hillfort, but following the Couronian expansion in Courland the hillfort went into the hands of Couronians. The hillfort was inhabited from the 10th to the 13th century. Nowadays, the hillock offers a magnificent view of the nearby area, including the vineyards cultivated next to it.
