Grīži Devil's chair

Grīži Devil's chair - one of the most beautiful and biggest chair-shaped stones in Latvia (height - 3m, length - 6.2m, width - 4.6m, perimeter - 17m).

A legend tells that the Devil used to live in Platene bog but the witch lived at the Hill Žagaru next to Pope. At night, the Devil went to visit the witch and started his way home only when the rooster sung the morning song. On a half-way Devil was tired and found a stone where to sit down and take a deep breath. 

The Devil's chair is located near the motorway Ventspils-Riga.
