Sagas and legends

Let yourself be enchanted by the sagas winding around Lake Caldaro, its villages and the majestic Castelchiaro ruin.

Still today the interesting sagas and legends, which are widespread in South Tyrol, are passed down from generation to generation. In the area of Caldaro and Termeno they tell about the origins of Lake Caldaro and the provenance of several holy pictures and explain also why wild peas grow in the surroundings of the once majestic Castelchiaro fortress.
