Seni nostāsti vēstī, ka 14.gs. Melnsilā, pašā jūras krastā, dzīvojis vienīgais, īstais latviešu jūras laupītājs Trommels, kuram piederējusi Trommeļa pils uz augstas kāpas Baķupītes kreisajā krastā. Kamēr kuģi pie Melnsila gaidījuši ceļavēju, lai varētu apbraukt netālo Kolkasragu, Trommels kuģus aplaupījis un salaupītos dārgumus noglabājis pils pagrabos. Pils vieta un mūri esot bijuši redzami vēl 19.gs beigās un 20.gs. sākumā, kad vietējie iedzīvotāji akmeņus un ķieģeļus izmantojuši māju būvē.
Trommeļa pils mūsdienās vairs nav redzama, bet viduslaiku nocietinājuma vieta, kas ir valsts nozīmes arheoloģisks piemineklis, un apslēpto dārgumu meklētāju sarakātās bedres kāpā ir apskatāmas vēl šodien. Pils atrodas Rojas pagastā, 400 m ziemeļaustrumos no Melnsila ciema veikala, 100 m no Krauju mājām.

___________________________________________________

Old stories tell in that in 14th century, in the seashore in Melnsils, the only real Latvian pirate Trommel used to live. He owned Trommel castle on a high dune on the left bank of River Baķupīte. While ships were waiting for tailwind to sail around the nearby Cape Kolka, Trommel robbed ships and stored the robbed treasure in his castle cellars. One could see the location and walls of the castle in the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century when local inhabitants used stones and bricks for construction of their homes.
The Trommel castle is not standing today anymore but everybody is welcome to visit pits dig by seekers of the hidden treasure as well as the medieval fortification that is a national archaeological monument. The castle is located in Roja parish, 400 m Northeast from Melnsils village shop, 100 m from Kraujas farm.
