Geocache Description:


Pasiene St. Cross Roman Catholic Church (also known as Pasiene St.Dominic Catholic Church) was built in 18th century (from 1761 till 1770) and is one of most beautiful and magnificent churches not only in Latgale region, but also in Latvia.

The church was initially built as Dominican monastery church after the first wooden church had burnt down. The church hasn’t been modified much, therefore the magnificent interior can still be viewable - created by masters of the craft of 18th century - both local and foreign.
In the end of 2008 the restoration of indoor and facade was completed. Inside several art monuments can be seen - the central altar, side altars, pulpit - but unfortunately the church is open quite seldom. For indoors visit the local guides need to be contacted (cell ph.+371 28656530 Ilga Ivanova).
Near the church the ruins of the old monastery can be seen. Unfortunately the building was not renovated and one can only imagine its former splendour.

The cache itself is a small lock’n’lock container, placed outside the church, with log-book, pen, pencil, pencil-sharpener (all these items are not for trade), some trinkets for change (remember the golden rule - if you take something, put something in of equal or higher value; no food, no perfumes, no lighters, nor matches etc). There’s a small present for the first to find - “you won’t believe it until you see it...” :)
Please, be careful when searching for the cache and beware of potential muggles when retrieving and placing back the container. And please replace the container the same way it was - but don’t overdo.

Pasienes baznica

LV: Pasienes Sv.Krusta Romas katolu baznica (ari Pasienes Sv.Dominika katolu baznica) ir viena no krasnakajam un skaistakajam baznicam ne tikai Latgale, bet ari visa Latvija. Baznica celta ar grafa J.Borha atbalstu no 1761.gada lidz 1770.gadam baroka stila.

Eka sakotneji buveta ka dominikanu klostera baznica pec pirmas koka baznicas nodegsanas. Kops uzcelsanas baznica ir maz parveidota; ir saglabajies krasnais interjers, ko veidojusii 18. gs. vietejie un arzemju meistari.
2008.gada nogale tika pabeigta iekstelpu un fasades restauracija. Baznica apskatami vairaki makslas pieminekli - centralais altaris, sanu altari, kancele - tacu diemzel baznica vala ir reti. Lai apskatitu iekstelpas, jasazinas ar gidu (mob.+371 28656530 Ilga Ivanova).
Blakus baznicai redzama bijusa klostera eka, kas diemzel nav atjaunota un var tikai nojaust tas kadreizejo krasnumu.

Pats slepnis ir neliela izmera lock’n’lock tipa kastite, kas atrodas arpus baznicas un satur registracijas zurnalu, pildspalvu, zimuli, asinamo (sis nav apmainas lietas), ka ari dazadus niecinus apmainai (atcerieties “zelta likumu” - ja ko panemat, nolieciet vieta ko lidzvertigu - nekadas partikas, smarzu, skiltavu, serkocinu uc). Kastite ir ari neliela davanina pirmajam atradejam - “you won’t believe it until you see it...” (neticesiet, kamer pasi neredzesiet). :)
Ludzu, esiet uzmanigi, meklejot slepni, un uzmanieties no potencialajiem verotajiem. Ludzu, novietojiet konteineri atpakal ta ka tas bija, tacu ari neparcentieties.
