Geocache Description:


Dundags pīl i diktam dižs un sens, gandrīz tikpat vecs ka Rīg! Pa garem gadiem pīl i dīv reiz dēdzs, lidz akmeņem nodēdzs, bet viš i agal un agal uzcelts no jaun, un a katr reiz avien plašaks, avien lielaks! Pa pīl i tikdoudz nostāst un teiks,- ku to vis var izteikt! Vien gan vis zin lāb, pat ekskursant – pa zaļe dām, ko vens otars vel šodien satiek pile. Tā viš i.


/LAT/ Dundagas pils ir lielākā Ziemeļkurzemē, turklāt labi saglabājusies. Rīgas domkapituls to sāka būvēt 13.gs. vidū, 1434.gadā to nopirka Kurzemes bīskaps, bet no 16. līdz 20.gs. tā piederēja muižnieku Maidelu un Ostenu–Zakenu dzimtām. Pils divas reizes nodegusi un vairrākkārt pārbūvēta, pēdējo reizi pēc nodedzināšanas 1905.gadā. Ar pili saistās daudz teiku, no kurām pazīstamākā ir par Zaļo jumpravu.

Lai piereģistrētu šo slēpni kā atrastu, jums jādodas uz dotajām koordinātām un jāuzņem kopbilde ar bīskapu Bertoldu un Ordeņa mestru Dītrihu no Grīningenas.
