Pāvilosta is a small port town in Latvia located at the mouth of Saka river in Courland.HistoryThe territory of modern Pāvilosta has been inhabited since the Stone age. During the late iron age and the Livonian crusade the territory was inhabited by Curonians and was part of the Piemare land. In 1253 in agreement between Bishop of Courland and Livonian Order port at the mouth of Saka river is mentioned for the first time. In the later years small port named Sackenhausen was part of the Bishopric of Courland, Duchy of Courland and Semigallia and since 1795 Russian Empire.In 1879 local landlord from nearby Upesmuiža manor Otto Friedrich von Lilienfeld started extensive reconstruction works of the small port. New port town was named Paulshafen, after baron's brother General governor of the Courland Governorate Paul von Lilienfeld. However development of the town is not so fast as von Lilienfeld has planned. Many building plots are available for rent but during ten years only ten buildings are built. Port is used only by several fishermen and three small sailers owned by nearby manors.
