Three Cross Hill

Vilnius, Lithuania

"This monument can be seen from a great part of the city. It was erected to commemorate 14
monks who according to a legend came as missionaries and were martyred by pagans on this
site. The first crosses were in wood and built in 1613." --Astrid

Thanks to Astrid for phooning (and for the photo idea).
