Whitches Stone

By car, it is easily accessible from the A22 (Brenner motorway), exit Bressanone/Brixen in Val Pusteria/Pustertal, Vandoies/Vintl, Terento/Terenten.


Was this a stone for witches? Was it a fertility stone? Or was it, at the very least, a pre-Christian place of worship? This very interesting stone is a bowl-stone. According to the narrations of old locals, on this stone, the witches used to dance with the devil. Their foot imprints can still be seen. Old dairy farmers say, that not only did the witch meetings take place there, but drinking sessions during the nights of the summer solstice also took place. The water source near the stone draws us to the conclusion that this stone had something to do with the fertility cult. Starting point: Terento-Terenten - parking place "Val Vena"
