Devil's Kiln (Great Ellite)

Description
Unusual geomorphological and culture monument. It consists of cave (lenth - 23 m), powerful spring, several arches and cliff.
These are the only sandstone archs in Latvia after the collapse of Sietiniezis arch. In total here are three arches. Those arches represent a part of the former cave which has been connected with the present day cave. Cave together with the spring are important archaeological monuments - ancient cult site. Unfortunately the former respect to this site has vanished and substituted by vandalism. It continues even today. Here was mined sand - this continued until 1920ies. Before those mining activities this monument resembled large organ with numerous pipes of sand.
