From COOLTUR Cultural Tourism we present our tour of Witchcraft in Caldes de Montbui
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.
During these years, Caldes de Montbui became the capital of the Vegueria del Vallès. As the capital, several legal proceedings were held in this municipality against people accused of witchcraft. Many of these people were executed, although one escaped death. Through this tour, you can discover the history of the witchcraft processes in Caldes de Montbui. In addition, you will also discover some of the legends of witchcraft that are still preserved in this village.
This is a circular tour of about 10 km. We believe this is a route that can be done with the whole family. However, it can also be done with pets. As well as learning about the phenomenon of witchcraft, you will also enjoy the municipality of Caldes de Montbui.
