Tillgänglighet
No indication signs whatsoever; there are also no signs by any of the homesteads. The Ceriņi homestead has not been marked in the map of "Jāņa sēta" of 100 scale, it can be found only when asking for directions. The proprietor was also curious to know how it was possible to find the site, because he knows that it is not that easy. On the way to the hill there are two electric fences. In the yard there is a peaceful German shepherd dog and an unleashed cow.

There used to be an ancient burial ground. During the Soviet Times there were excavation works performed but they found only a couple of crania. The ancient burial ground was situated on the low land by the Medņupīte River at the foot of the Medņu Jānis' Hill. Vilnis has never heard anything about Medņu Jānis (the grandmother has not told him anything about it as well).
