An ancient settlement in Kapčiamiestis, called Pinčiaragis or Palangėlė, is a stone-age settlement located on the banks of the Baltoji Ančia River. During field research, the tip of a flint arrow was found together with embroidered and engraved ceramics, scissors and shards. Pinčiaragis is a mysterious area, but it is known to be related to important historical events.
In this museum founded in Kapčiamiestis High School, you can learn about the distinguished people of Kapčiamiestis, the traditions and daily lives of the local people, as well as about Emilija Pliaterytė, the leader of the 1831 uprising. She is believed to have been a Lithuanian Joan of Arc, who died near Kapčiamiestis as she was retreating with her rebel troops to Poland.
The length of the cobblestone road is about 400 m. According to legend, Duke Žygimantas Augustas escorted the body of his dead wife Barbora Radvilaitė along this road on foot, from Warsaw to Vilnius.
