From COOLTUR Cultural Tourism we present our tour of the Gorg Negre from Sobremunt
Witchcraft was a real phenomenon that took place during the 17th century. In this period, many women, and some men, were arrested, tried and executed for witchcraft. They were accused of having made a covenant with the devil. In addition, they were also blamed for the great droughts and storms that devastated the crops.
Parallel to these witchcraft processes, a great number of witchcraft legends appeared. These legends, apart from entertaining, also served to frighten and educate the population. In this tour, we propose you to go to Gorg Negre from Sobremunt. According to the preserved legends, several witches lived in this pool. In addition, these witches were guilty of having created great storms that devastated the Plain of Vic. Besides, through this tour you can also enjoy the natural landscape that exists in this municipality.
This is a circular tour of about 14 km. Due to its distance; we believe that this is a route for walkers. However, it can also be done with pets. As you learn the preserved witchcraft legends, you will also enjoy the landscapes of Sobremunt.
