OUR APOLOGISE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE!

The road marking in this stage begins from the territory of city Cesis not far from one of Camino’s accommodations “Gaujaslici”. 80 m after passing the sign of “Gaujaslici”, turn left on a wooded road and go up a hill in the forest. Continue straight this sandy wooded road for 1 km across all crossings until reach a T- junction with the highway. Turn to the left and in 100 m, turn to the right in the forest again. In 300 m turn left at the T junction, and then after 150 m turn the right along the low rumblings up the hill to the tarred Turaidas Street near the multi-story houses. Turn to the
left on the street, move over to the sidewalk and in the next T-junction with Viestura Street turn right. Here’s a beautiful view of the towers of Cesis Palace and St. John’s Church.
Continue straight on Viestura Street until on the left side a begins across the shop “TOPS”. Turn left on a pedestrian path. After 40 m in the crossing, turn left along a beautiful twisted pedestrian path across a ravine. After passing the cemetery, we come to the Palasta Street, cross it and take a cobbled pedestrian path into the Palace Park. Keeping along the left side of the park, go up towards the Cesis Palace, along the open-air stage, until reach the stairs. Stepping up, passing across the square and through the gates, we are on Tower Street. Turn right and head to St. John’s Church.
This is where the stage ends. Nice rest and a lot of good feelings at Cesis!
