           The Veckuldīga Hill Fortress is located about 3 km from the centre of Kuldīga where the Venta makes a bend and turns to the right. It occupies an area of about 1 and is one of the biggest hill fortress sites in Kurzeme. The hill fortress is sited on the left bank of the Venta between the Venta and the outflow into it of the Veckuldīga River. From the front the castle site is bordered by a 100 m long and 5-6 m high earthen wall and a 10 m deep ditch. Behind the forecastle was an ancient town (10 ha) in which Kurši artisans and merchants lived. A 1-2 m  archaeological layer found in the town demonstrates that it was inhabited for a long time.
