Geocache Description:







Ta nočni zaklad nas bo popeljal na znameniti mariborski grič Piramida (386 m). Na Piramidi je kapelica, pod katero je vinograd. Je tudi izletniška točka, od koder si sprehajalci ogledujejo Maribor. Dostop do vrha traja 15 do 30 minut.

That night cache will take us to the famous Piramida hill near Maribor (386 m). On the hill is the chapel, below which the vineyard. It is also an excursion point from where you have magnificent view over Maribor. Access to the top of the last 15 to 30 minutes..

Vse do leta 1784 je na griču stal mariborski zgornji grad - Marchpurg oziroma Marburg. Prvič je bil omenjen leta 1164 v 12. stoletju. V prevodu pomeni Marburg grad v marki ali mejni grad. Zgradili so ga zato, da bi se obvarovali pred Madžari, ki so takrat napadali naše kraje. Leta 1528 je grad pogorel. Okoli leta 1560 so ga obnovili v renesančnem stilu, nato pa do leta 1790 porušili. Iz ostankov materiala so postavili kamnito piramido, ki je dala griču tudi ime. Od gradu pa sta ostala okop s strmim nasipom in vodnjak brez venca. Vrh okopa stoji klasicistična kapela iz leta 1821 s kamnitim Marijinim kipom. Napis na spominski plošči v kapeli priča o tem, da je prvotno piramido leta 1821 uničila strela, grof Henrik Brandis pa je dal postaviti kapelo v spomin na lokacijo starega gradu. Grič so pred imenom Piramida imenovali različno: od »mons castri« do »der Purgperg« v 13. in 14. stoletju.
