From COOLTUR Cultural Tourism we present our tour of Witchcraft in Sant Feliu Sasserra (Variant 1)
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.
Sant Feliu Sasserra, at that time, was the capital of the Sub Vegueria of Lluçanès. As capital, it was responsible for judging and executing all those accused of witchcraft, of the Lluçanès. In addition, as a consequence of these events, many legends were created about witchcraft. Through this tour, you can discover the processes of witchcraft, and some of the legends that are still preserved in this municipality.
This is a circular tour of about 10 km. Due to its distance, and unevenness, we believe that this is a route for walkers. However, it can also be done with pets and / or bicycle. While you will learn about the phenomenon of witchcraft, you will also enjoy the landscapes of Sant Feliu Sasserra.
