The legend of Monte Pietramarina, in Castiglione di Sicilia, tells of a hidden treasure and a spell that guards it.
The legend tells of a treasure hidden in the bowels of the Pietramarina Mount, a famous treasure jealously enclosed in the belly of the massive tertiary sandstone that can only be materialized with the execution of rituals to break binding spells. In order to break the spell that exists in that place, and thus be able to take the fantastic treasure, a priest would have to bring, at exactly midnight, a woman waiting for a creature and let her drink a glass of milk. According to the legend, therefore, in an indeterminate place, the huge rock should open and, as if by magic, the treasure would pop out.
