Geocache Description:


[LV]Netalu no Dunalkas atrodas Dunalkas baronu kapenes. Ar Kulturas Ministrijas 29.10.1998 rikojumu Nr.128, tas ir ieklautas Valsts aizsargajamo kulturas piemineklu saraksta. Ieverojamakais kapenem: piramidas idejas tiešs iemiesojums Latvija. Tam ir istas piramidas forma, kuras priekša pievienots monumentalais portals ar divam nišam un frontonu. Portals ir klasicisma stila, bet kaplicas iekšpuse visai romantiska. Piramida partop cilindriska telpa, kuras biezajos muros tris rindas likts pa 14 radialam nišam zarku novietošanai. Telpiska iecere ir baiga un fascinejoša. Kritiska stavokli atrodas Dunalkas baronu kaplica, kurai pašreiz netiek izmantota un apsaimniekota, jo ekai nav sakartotas ipašuma tiesibas. Tomer neskatoties uz to, ka kapenes ir katastrofala stavokli, tas ir verts apskatit. Netalu no tam ir izveidots stends, kura sikak aprakstits par kapenem un ir redzama fotografija, kas lauj saprast, cik tas ir bijušas diženas. Nav nekadu zinu, kas un kad noticis ar nišas novietotajiem zarkiem. Vieniga informacija, ko izdevas atrast ir 1937. gada 27.junija ‘’Kurzemes varda’’ publicets raksts ‘’Necienigs ‘’varondarbs’’’’.”.....Janos daži iereibuši jaunieši kaplica pastradajuši necienigu ‘’varondarbu’’. Vini uzlauzuši kaplicas durvis, sadauzijuši vairakas nišas novietotus zarkus un kada niša pat no zarka atliekam sakuruši uguni, sadedzinadami zarku ar tani esošo gindeni.’’
Nemot vera, ka ši celtne ir Latvija unikala, papetijam tuvak, kas tad tie ir bijuši par ieverojamiem baroniem, kuriem gribejies sev uzcelt tik greznu kaplicu. Dunalku1708.gada Fridrihs fon Sakens pardeva vienam no bagatakajiem Kurzemes baroniem – Karlim fon Firksam, kura pecteci Dunalkas muižu 2.gs. garuma mantoja no paaudzes paaudze. Firksi (von Fircks) – muižnieku dzimta Kurzeme. Pirmie Firksi Baltija ka Danijas vasali mineti 14. gadsimta sakuma Virlande (Igaunija). No 1494 dzivoja Kurzeme, no 1505 Oktes un Škedes, no 1566 ari Nurmuižas ipašnieki. 1620 uznemti Kurzemes brunniecibas matrikula. Karla fon Friksa pectecis un vina varda bralis Dunalka dzivojušais Karlis fon Firkss, pec sevis atstajis uzceltu skolu un nespejnieku namu, esot bijis zemnieku aizstavis.
Slepnis ir neliela plastmasas kastite ar logbooku un zimuli, dažiem sikumiem mainai.
Nemot vera kapenu stavokli, slepnis nav izvietots iekšpuse. Lugums neparkramet visus iespejamos kiegelus, citadi katram nakamajam bus mazak ko redzet. Atrodiet vispirms hintu. Vai iet iekša, vai neiet, ta ir katra personiga darišana, cik kuram gribas risket list gruvešos.
[ENG] Mausoleum of Dunalka Manor. The most sign ficant example of pyramidal influences in Latvian architecture was the mausoleum of Dunalka manor (early 19th century).It was built reflecting the autentic from of pyramids with a monumental portal featunng two niches and pediment. The portal was an element of Classicism, while the inerior is Romantic. From the inside, the pyramid was gradually transformed in a cylinder-shaped room and its thick walls accommodated three of radial niches (14 in each row) for sarcophag. The spatial idea was ternfying and fascinating, as an observer in the middle of the mausoleum room was penetrated by unavoilable radation of the demanding and awaiting niches. The empty niches were supposed to have an even greater negative influence on the living members of the family as they served as a reminder of the mortality of the current and yet unborn generations and their doom to return in this last resting place. As fot today only the ruins of the mausoleum have survived, however, its spatial cimposition, facade, finish and ornamental elements reflect its original form and artistic solutions.
Cache is a small plastic box with log book and pencil and also with some small things for exchange. Cache is outside.
