Poteronys Mound

Mounds, Alytus district

According to the legend, a priestess dressed in white used to appear on the top of the mound at midnight, where she nursed fire, cried and wailed. She would disappear with a crow of roosters. The mound dates back to the 1st millennium – early 2nd millennium.
