Castle of Bardi
The haunting of this castle comes from a tragic love story. The daughter of the castle’s master, Soleste fell desperately in love with Moroello, the leader of the knights. Distant battles often took Moroello away from the castle for long time periods, during which time Soleste awaited his return perched atop the castle walls, her eyes searching the horizon.
One morning, Soleste spotted riders. To her horror, the knights wore enemy’s flags. Distraught at the thought of her lover perishing at war, Soleste threw herself from the wall.
Alas, the riders were Moroello and his men, brandishing their enemies’ colors in celebration of their victory. Finding Soleste’s body crumpled before the castle, a heartbroken Moroello also killed himself. To this day, the ghosts of the lovers wander the castle.
