Travel Tips for Benevento

The witches legend

by egicom05

The legend goes back to the Longobard period from 6th to 11th century.The Longobardi used to celebrate in Wotban’s honor (it was the name of their god), around a walnut tree (that many people, today, think should be in the Sabato’s river valley), on the tree they hung a goat, hit it with arrows and ate toring pieces with mouth.
To the local catholic people this custom seemed diabolical. And make them tell that the witches came in Benevento. The legend tell that the witches came from all over the surrounding areas, spread with a magic ointment that make them fly, and each one is accompanied by her own devil, a “Martiniello”. According to the legend, they met each other (they are about 2.000), they did orgies and made spells and then, all together go dancing around the walnut tree and singing the song (in local dialect): "Sott'a l'acqua e sott'o viento, sott'a noce e Beneviento" -“ Under the water under the wind under the Benevento’s walnut”. When the Longobardi people allied with the Barbato bishop, and converted to the Catholicism, the legendary walnut tree was cut down to celebrate the victory on the witches and devils.

I've Benevento Here!

by MTommyHill

"Oops, I over slept on my train to Naples..."

And that sums up why I was in Benevento. It was hot and not very plesant, walked around town a bit saw an Arch. Lastly, because of a train strike, ended up taking a cab all the way to Naples. Not worth a stop unless you have a whole lot of extra time.
