Owner description: Maasi medieval fort-castle was built with the forced labour of islanders. That's how the ruling Liivi order punished indigenous inhabitants for the uprising, which had destroyed orders previous stronghold. Seaside fort-castle was undefeated until blown up by Danes. 8m walls that survived the destruction have become a landmark.Good to know:On August 11th, 1576, Danish king Frederik II ordered Maasi stronghold destroyed, it has been in ruins ever since.

When visiting Saaremaa, worth taking the time to see the cool dungeons. Not for claustrophobics though. Many passages and overall good place to climb after sitting in the car.

We saw a sign along the route, so we decided to visit this place. And it was great! This place is little bit out of interest of tourist, but it worth to visit! And you can also buy wooden home-made things from locals.

Thank Filki
