Alekšupīte Waterfall

It was fixed and built up in the 17th century to use the stream to operate the first paper-mill in Kurzeme.

As the waterfall is created artificially and is located next to the unattended mill building, it does not look especially attractive.

The upper part of the waterfall is fixed by setting refractory bricks. A dam is built above the waterfall. About 30 metres down the stream, Alekšupīte has another small terrace.
