The legends

The Legends of Castelluccio of Norcia

The charm of these places has always resulted in many fantasies in the minds of visitors and people who live there. By the end of the 14th century, they were portrayed as the land of necromancers, fairies and demons of all kinds.

There is no doubt that, in the legends of the Sibillini are no elements of Christian culture (the legend of the Lago di Pilato) and late medieval Nordic (the Venusberg, fairies and witches), the latter seem to prevail, thanks to Antoine de La Sale that visiting these places in 1420 wrote his “Paradis de la reine Sybille” spreading the legends of our mountains in northern Europe.
