The Stone of the Cross

Address 21 E. Kauliņa aleja, Lielvārde, Ogre municipality

The stone cross has been deformed and is sunk deep into the ground, so it is difficult to determine its precise size; the portion visible above ground is 1.1 m long, 0.9 m wide and -.3m thick. The stone cross contains the cross of crosses engraved on it, a sign that serves to protect from harm. According to local tradition, the stone cross is called the Stone of the Cross.
