Located amid the lush countryside around the village of Gargždelė, close to the border with Latvia, is the spiritual oasis that is the Orvidas Homestead. Created to act as a place for contemplation and discovery by its creator, a Franciscan monk, it is a unique space suffused with symbolic meaning and natural wonder. The park brings together unique stone sculptures, crosses and folk reliquary and art to provide an inspirational setting for spiritual reflection far away from the noise and distractions of the city. Nature is all around, and is very much the medium from which much of the art has been created. And it is this idea of the unity of spirit, creativity and nature that defines the space. Perfect for those looking for a more meditative experience. And it’s located within easy driving distance from Palanga if you are looking for a calm escape from the hustle and bustle of the beach.
