"Church and castle mounds" Liskiava Things to Do Tip by Raimix

Liskiava Things to Do: 3 reviews and 8 photos

 
 

Not so far from monastery, near the bank of Nemunas river there are two hills. The first hill, walking from the monastery side, is called Church mound. Here the first Liskiava church stood, possible, from 14th century. Walking further there is Castle mound. The wooden castle stood here, and later, at the beginning of 15th century the construction of new stone castle began, but it was finished soon just making groundwork and a bit of first tower. After winning Grunwald battle against Crusaders (1410) there was no need to finish this defensive spot.

It is recommended to go up mounds to see great panorama of Nemunas river, monastery.
