On the River Varduva, Zemaiciu Kalvarija is sited on several little hills, each of which has a place of worship, making up a Stations of the Cross route which every year in early July is followed by thousands of pilgrims. Built in the 17C, the wood or brick chapels are little masterpieces of traditional architecture. Visitors will also see attractive scenes of everyday life among its colourful houses and wooden chapels. Each Friday morning a small market is held at the basketball ground.
