Devil's Dam of Embūte is an awesome place for hiking and trekking in the Courland region.
We first discovered this site at the end of 2020, and plan to return here more often.

At the western foot of the Indulis (or Curonian) castle mound is the Joda Lower Square, where open-air stages have been built several times. Large-scale events have also taken place here - the Midsummer Festival with the participation of President Kārlis Ulmanis, theater performances and concerts. In the 1930s, several thousand people from all over the surrounding area gathered here for the summer solstice celebrations and peasants' days.
At present, the Joda Dam and its surroundings are designed for tourists. Walking trails, stairs, observation tower, observation platforms, information stands have been created.
