Geocache Description:

LV Slēpnis novietots pie Mūrmuižas nocietinājuma torņa. EN Cache is placed near to Mūrmuiža fortification tower


[LV] Mūrmuižas nocietinājuma tornis ir unikāls renesanses arhitektūras piemineklis, kuram līdzīga Latvijā nav. Tas vairākkārt pārbūvēts. Pirmā stāva sienās sākotnēji bijuši logi, kas pēc tam aizmūrēti. Te atradies kamīns, kas norāda, ka tornis ticis apdzīvots. Uz otro stāvu varēja nokļūt pa ārpuses kāpnēm. Izmantots dažādiem mērķiem – kā dzīvojamā ēka, klēts, spirta brūzis, noliktava, tāpēc torņa raksturošana ietver daudz neskaidrību un pretrunu. Ēkai nav nocietinātam tornim raksturīgas šaujamlūkas.

Šis slēpnis ir arī daļa no tūrisma akcijas "Simtgades dārgumi". Valmieras Tūrisma informācijas centrs sadarbībā ar Kocēnu, Burtnieku un Beverīnas novadiem aicina piedalīties tūrisma akcijā „Simtgades dārgumi”! Tuvojoties Latvijas simtajai gadskārtai, aicinām ceļot Valmieras pusē un meklēt apslēptos dārgumus īpašos slēpņos, kas rodami kā spēka vārdi sev ikdienā un Latvijai tās nākamajai simtgadei.

[ENG] The fortification tower in Mūrmuiža is a unique renaissance architecture monument. It has been rebuilt for several times. Initially the ground floor had windows, which later were walled up. There used to be a fireplace, which means that people used to live in there. First floor could be reached by stairs located outside of the building. The tower has been used for several purposes – as a dwelling house, granary, distillery, warehouse, causing a lot of confusion and contradiction. The building does not have loopholes typical to other fortification towers.

This cache is also part of tourism campaign “Centennial treasures”. As Latvia’s centennial is approaching, Valmiera Tourist Information Centre in cooperation with Kocēni, Burtnieki and Beverīna Municipalities invite you to travel around Valmiera and its vicinity, in search for the hidden treasures.
