Rauna Tanīskalns is one of Latvias largest hill forts and an archaeological monument of national significance. As an ancient fortified settlement it was established on top of a hill about 24m high, on the left bank of river Rauna. When the fortification was shaped, sides of the hill were made steeper around a flat, 4000 m2 large area. On the southern side, a terrace was made, while at the north-western end of the hill, a three-metre-high rampart was banked and a ditch was dug. A road for reaching the top of the hill fort was made along its north-eastern side and was well protected by the rampart.
