The lovely Saldus hillfort is on the shore of Lake Saldus, and the Biļļu hill that is alongside it offers a terrific view of the hillfort. There is a large car park nearby. The hillfort dates back to the early Iron Age and was populated during the 12th century. There has been agriculture in the area from the very beginning, and so there is no cultural layer for archaeologists to explore. The viewing area on Biļļu hill also offers a chance to take excellent photographs of the letters that make up the name of Saldus. That is a popular tourist destination. Fans of the landscape are also encouraged to visit the nearby Lake Ciecere viewing tower, which is on an artificial reef on the shore of the lake. It stands 30 m high.
