Fairy Nymphaeum – Local legends

0
A place as special as the Nymphaeum of the Fairies could not fail to have its own legends. It is said that the fairies, petrified here, used to gather to watch over their treasure, which they carefully hid, only to take over the location from a farmer friend of theirs. But there is also a story about a girl with an intense desire for motherhood that almost drove her to madness. Here she came to cradle the branch of a tree just as if it were a child. The fairies took pity on her, so much so that they transformed that branch into a flesh-and-blood child and gave it to her as a gift.
