Geocache Description:

Slēpnis ir fotofilmiņas konteineris, iekšā logbook un zimulitis. Lai panemtu slepni, uz drupam nav jakapj, tapec busim saudzigi pret to, kas no tam vel palicis.

Gaujienas jeb Adzeles pils celta 1238.gadā stratēģiski svarīgā vietā, kur krustojas Gaujas ūdensceļš ar Pleskavas-Rīgas ceļu.
Pils tiek uzskatīta par 2.vecāko konventa tipa pili Baltijā. Sākotnēji to veidoja 2 korpusi pie ārējā mūra, divi citi korpusi tos savienoja. Pils platība bijusi 858 kvm, t.sk. 101 kvm pagalms.
14.gs. izbūvēti priekšpils ārējie nocietinājumi, kas papildināti 15.gs.
Krievu karaspēks 1558. un 1560. gadā ieņēma un izpostīja pili. 16.gs. beigās pils atjaunota. 1600.g. atjaunoto pili ieņēma zviedri, 1602.g. - poļi.
1702.gadā Ziemeļu kara laikā, kad tā jau bijusi pastāvējusi 464 gadus, pils tika sagrauta un vairs nav atjaunota. Līdz mūsdienām saglabājušās gleznainas pilsdrupas, kas ir iemīļota pastaigu vieta.
