It is a place where you can be in a two districts at the same time. Get on the bridge and here you are – one foot in Rokiškis district and the other one – in Zarasai district.

Marimont in Latin means “the mountain of dead”. It is said that the name has originated from a road winding through a steep hill. At the top of the hill there is never freezing spring. Water flows downwards, so the road has always been sloppy, wet and dirty. It is said that in winter a lot of people fell down and sacrificed their lives.

Marimont manor was built in the second half of 19th century and belonged to the manor of Antazavė. A dam, mill and sawmill were built in this place above Zalvė stream. Wool was carded, yarns were spun here. The mill, sawmill were operating even in the post-war years, however, in 1946 or 1947 when fire broke out, everything burned and only remains of stone masonry and a part of stone-based ancient path remained.
