Geocache Description:

[LAT]

Sena teika vestii, ka Pilteni esot dibinajis Danijas karalis Valdemars, kas devies ar kugiem sirojumaa pa Kurzemi. Vinš nolemis celt pilsetu tur, kur satikšot pirmo zenu ("piltene" vecdaanju valoda nozimejot puiku). Šadu zenu karalis tiešam saticis, makškerejot pie tagadejas Piltenes.


Piltenes pils bijusi Kurzemes biskapu galvena pils. Pils celšanas gads nav zinams. Pirmo reizi dokumentos Piltenes pils mineta 1309. gada. Vairaki Livonijas pilu petnieki ir vienisprat, ka pils tikusi celta 14. gs. vel pirms 1309. gada, jo spriežot pec 13. gs.vestures avotiem, Piltenes pils 13. gs. vel nav bijusi.

Pedejais Kurzemes biskaps Johans fon Minhauzens 1559. g. pardeva savas tiesibas uz biskapiju Danijas karalim, kurš savukart tas atdeva savam bralim hercogam Magnusam. Hercogs Magnus pili uztureejas no 1561. lidz 1567. gadam un no 1578. lidz 1583. gadam.

1583. gada poli uzbruka Piltenes pilij, un pils garnizons padodoties uzspridzinaja vienu no pils torniem. Pils cieta ari zviedru-polu karaa, ka rezultataa ta tika pamatigi postita un izlaupita.

Visu 17. gs. Piltenes pilij mainijas saimnieki. Uz laiku ta nonaca Danijas, Polijas, Prusijas, Zviedrijas un Kurzemes hercogistes valdijuma, lidz beidzot 1795. g. ta kluva par Krievijas imperijas sastavdalu. Pateicoties nemitigai saimnieku mainai, pils pamazam sagruva. 1740. g. bija apdzivots vairs tikai viens pils spaarns.

Pilsdrupas gandriz pazuda no zemes virsmas jau 18. gs. beigas - 19. gs. sakuma, jo pilsetas iedzivotaji saka izmantot pilsdrupu akmenus savu maju celtniecibai. 21. gs. sakuma no Piltenes pils bija palikušas vairs tikai divu tornu drupas, viens pils sienas izcilnis un daži priekšpils aizsargmuru fragmenti.

Slepnis ir neliela lock-lock tipa kastite ar viesu gramatu, rakstamo un dažam lietinam mainai. No diviem novietojuma sturiem, izvelieties to, kas vairak nost no citu acim.
