From COOLTUR Cultural Tourism we present our tour of the Legends of Witchcraft in la Torre d’Oristà

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 a route to discover the legends of witchcraft in la Torre d’Oristà. In addition, you will also be able to enjoy the natural landscape that is next to this municipality.

This is a circular tour of about 5 km. We believe that this is a tour that can be done with the whole family. In addition, it can also be done with pets and / or bicycle. At the same time that you will learn the preserved legends of witchcraft, you will also enjoy the landscapes of La Torre d’Oristà.
