Pont de Massoere – Borna du diable – Bois du Dot

PONT DE MASSOERE: legend has it that when a bridal procession crossed this bridge the groom had to carry the bride on his shoulders or else she would fall victim to the curses of the fairies that lived in the surrounding areas.

BORNA DU DIABLE (devil’s cave): this place is located in Servaz di Brusson and legend has it that it was inhabited by dragons and calves whose task it was to guard enchanted treasure. People visiting the cave would see a black cat at the entrance and then it would disappear.

BOIS DU DOT: forest in the surrounding areas of the Vollon. It was the home of a giant snake that scared the inhabitants of the area. Two brothers were able to kill it and, as a reward, asked for a free niche in the parish cemetery that in those days was located underneath the church flooring.
