Medieval Fears; witches and spirits in Peratallada and the Empordà area

Folk religion; Witches, spirits and other Medieval Fears

Through all these years of research, and after walking so many times the same streets and squares, I have been wondering if all the marks and drawings that I have been discovering were mere decorations or there was another purpose on them.

Not so long ago, there were two religions that merged to the point that one could not distinguish which was the official religion and which one the folk religion. Inhabitants of the area believed in God, also in the Devil. How not to use the tools of God and at the same time those of the Devil to protect against attacks and calamities?

Details and marks that can be found in Ireland in the shape of naked women (there is an interesting example in the Empordà area), in Finland with skulls buried in the corners of buildings or in Australia itself with shoes concealed inside the houses.
A research that lead me to offer a visit , discovering part of these rituals and marks in the towns of Peratallada and Sant Llorenç de la Muga

A tour that fits perfectly at dusk when darkness starts covering the town.
