The magic of these places has always caused charm between its visitors and inhabitants. This is maybe the main reason for what these legends have been told from generations to generations till nowadays.
The most famous legend is surely “King Laurin and the Rose garden”, included in the famous book “I monti pallidi”, written by Karl Felix Wolff.
Once upon a time, a long long time ogo, there was an enchanted kingdom where King Laurin and his people of hard working and ingenius dwarfes  lived. The kingdom was hidden in Catinaccio, and was covered by roses throughout the whole year. This is why it was called “Rosengarten” ,that means “Garden of roses”.
One day Laurin learned that a neighbour king had a beautiful daughter, Similda, and decided to ask she in heritage. The princess rejected his proposal, also Laurin, that was a powerful magician, kidnap her and bring her in the heart of Catinaccio.

After seven days, Similda brother’s discovered her prison, and started with a large number of soldiers to free her. After a long walk they finally came in the Laurin’s  Garden. One of the soldiers violently ruined a lot of roses, and after this hard action  King Laurin get very angry. A terrible fight started. In the middle of the battle, from the heart of the rock suddenly opened a door, and Similda appared. She was happy to see her brother, and said that Laurin was a good man, that always treat her like a queen. Between the dwarves and the soldiers there was the peace, but not all of the soldiers was good men and during the night they fighted the dwarves and starded another cruent battle.

In the end Laurin was imprisoned and conducted in a remote place. After a lot of years, he fortunately get out of the prison and came back to his kingdom. He understood that the roses was the cause of his defeat: if men had not seen them, they would have never discover his kingdom.
So Laurin transformed the roses in rocks, in order to made invisible at day and night. In his charm he forgot the sunrise and the sunset… For this reason nowadays we can see the garden. It is the Enrosadira, a phenomenon that at the sunrise and at the sunset paints the rock in red.
