Daleszyce - historical background and general information. Historical background
About this huge mountain covered with woods there are lots of stories. There are several versions of the legend but we present three of them.
According to the legend, at the top of this mountain, there is a mysterious dungeon with a trunk full of gold and silver. The person, who sees three bushes of hazel (the green one, the white one and the yellow one), will find the entrance to the dungeon. Then he or she should dig in this place to find the trunk with the treasure.
A long, long time ago it was a place where Jesus’s Mother used to appear. From this time, especially in periods of epidemic, there were processions to this place. Jesus’s Mother stopped to appear herself when a peasant was going by a carriage . The carriage was very heavy because it was loaded with heavy material. Suddenly the horses stuck in the swamp and were not able to move. Instead of calling the Mother of Jesus, he called the devil. What is more, he called the mountain Świnia Góra.
The moral: Mind your words in order not to be ashamed by them.
Inside the mountain there is enchanted virgin. Once a boy grazed his cattle on the slop of the mountain and by the chance he found the entrance to the underground. He was very curious about what was in the dungeon. He saw there a trunk full of gold an silver. Next to it a young woman was sitting. She was wearing a whitelong dress and holding a red flower in her hand. Giving it to a peasant, she told him gently to take the handful of money. The peasant was scared so he run away.Then the voice reverberated: “You fool, if you had took this flower, you would take me to your world. Maybe this virgin has been waiting for her rescuer till now...
