Monte Sibilla


Not one but a thousand legends are told about sublime crests of Mt Sibilla where, in an enchanted cave, protected by huge rocks collocated around the top in a shape of a crown, dwells Sibilla appenninica. According to those legends, if a human succeeded in passing innumerable obstacles on the way (sudden and violent currents of the air, bridges hanging over abysses, dragons guarding the path), Sibilla would reveal him destiny, gave him powers, showed dance of her servants or clenched him in a demoniac embrace.
