Geocache Description:

Augstroze's castle mound and ruins

Augstrozes pilskalna redzamas pilsdrupas ir 1272. gada celtas Rigas arhibiskapa vasala pils atliekas. Pils celta uz augstienes, ar domu, ka kalna stavas malas bus ka aizsardziba.
1601. g. pili izlaupijuši un izdedzinajuši poli un tatari. Pils velak nav atjaunota.

Par Augstrozes pils buvniecibu stasta teika:
Pils buvešanai esot sasaukti visi apkartnes interesenti. Pakalna virsotne tikusi paaugstinata, nesot zemes no kalna pakajes. Sakotneji darbs nav veicies, kas diena uzbuvets, tas nakti nogrimis. Pedigi amatnieki nolemuši, ka cilveks jaupure, to pils siena iemurejot. Glabat pils atslegas pieteikusies kada jauna meita. Lielskungs devis tai dzert saldu vinu. No vina ta apdullusi un tikusi iemureta pils siena. Tris dienas un tris naktis bijusi dzirdama vinas gaudošana. Tagad pils vairs nav grimusi. Ta ka iemuretas vards bijis Roze, tad ari pils nosaukta par Augsto Rozi.

Augstroze's castle ruins are left over from caslte built at Year 1272 as Riga's archibishop's vassals caslte. At the year 1601 caslte has been plundered and burned out by the Poles and Tatars. After then it has not been restored.
