Hill of Crosses
The Hill of Crosses is a site of pilgrimage about 60 km (38 miles) from our guesthouse. The precise origin of the practice of leaving crosses on the hill is uncertain, but it is believed that the first crosses were placed on the former Jurgaičai or Domantai hill fort after 1831 Uprising. Over the centuries, not only crosses, but giant crucifixes, carvings of Lithuanian patriots, statues of the Virgin Mary and thousands of tiny effigies and rosaries have been brought here by Catholic pilgrims, The number of crosses is unknown, but estimates put it at about 100,000 in 2006.
