Legend of a giant snake
According to the legend there is a giant snake that is guarding the treasure of the Garai family. The snake is 12 meters long and thicker than the thickest tree stump. It is said that the snake resides in the tunnels underneath the castle. Recently it has been discovered that in fact, there is a narrow cave system underneath the castle.
Fantasy of the locals was probably also influenced by the coat of arms of Garai family which depicts a snake.
