Pagryžuvys Manor and Mound

On the right bank of the Gryžuva river stands the Pagryžuvys Manor of romantic architecture. The palace was built in 1858 according to the design of the famous architect of that time, F. Rimgaila. At the end of the 18th century, Pagryžuvys Manor belonged to the noble family of Šemeta and later to the family of Pšeciševskis. After World War I, the manor was nationalized and given to the Jesuits. In addition, the estate was heavily damaged, since it had found itself on the front line during the war. Until World War II, the palace housed a Jesuit monastery and a care home. 

Pagryžuvys Mound is located on the left bank of Gryžuva. From the north, northwest and east, it is surrounded by the Gryžuva river and its valley. From the south, there is an adjacent hill. The slopes are steep, 12 – 13 m high. The plot has an irregular oval shape, elongated in the north-south direction, 11 m wide, 18 m long (it used to be round). The eastern part of the site and the northern slope were washed away by the Gryžuva. The mound is overgrown with deciduous trees, the underwood is cut down, and the site lies fallow. At the southwestern foot of the mound, there is a settlement on an area of 1 ha. 

The manor is private, visiting inside is not possible. Viewing the manor from the outside and visiting the mound is allowed at any time.
