Historic Sites
Aizpute is a town in western Latvia's Aizpute municipality in the valley of Tebra River, 50km northeast of Liepāja.HistoryThe territory of modern Aizpute was inhabited by ancient Curonians since the 9th century. St. John Lutheran church has been built on the curonian hillfort. In the 13th century during the Livonian crusade, the territory of Aizpute was conquered by German crusaders. Already in 1248 the master of the Livonian Order Dietrich von Grüningen ordered the building of a stone castle in Aizpute. The castle and the whole settlement became known as Hasenpoth. After the partition of Courland in 1253 Aizpute became part of the Bishopric of Courland. In 1260 Aizpute church is built. Bishop of Courland Otto granted Magdeburg rights to Aizpute in 1378.In the second half of the 16th century Aizpute experienced rapid development because Tebra river was used as main trade route for merchants of Aizpute who shipped their cargo down to the sea. After the Polish-Swedish war all trade and shipping infrastructure was destroyed and Aizpute started to experience decline. During 1611-1795 it was under the power of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth as a capital of the semi-autonomous Powiat Piltynski (District of Piltene).
