From COOLTUR Cultural Tourism we present our tour of the Legends of Witchcraft in Santa Maria d’Oló

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.

Due to these witchcraft processes, a large number of witchcraft legends appeared. These legends, apart from entertaining, also served to frighten and educate the population. In this tour, we propose you a tour to discover the legends of witchcraft in Santa Maria d’Oló. 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 14 km. We believe that due to its distance, this is a route for walkers. In addition, it can also be done with pets and / or bicycle. While you will learn the legends of witchcraft preserved, you will also enjoy the landscapes of Santa Maria d’Oló.
