  • The small grotto of Rosa Turaida (Gutmanala), located in a beautiful park of Sigulda, is associated with one of the legends of the region. Outside and inside there are many inscriptions – names, dates and coats of arms, reassembling the oldest to the 16TH century. There is a pure water source inside the grotto.
