Welcome to Hill of the Three Crosses

Hill of the Three Crosses

Near the Gediminas Castle in the Old City stands a hill topped with a trio of crosses, originally erected in the 17th century in memory of seven Franciscan monks who were crucified and thrown into the Vilnia River. The crosses were destroyed by the Soviet regime, but restored in 1989 to mark Lithuanian independence as a symbol of faith and national identity. There is an excellent view from the site, and pleasant walks on the wooded hillside.
