The Castle in Trencin / read the Legend about the well of love

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The legend has that the Castle owner, important nobleman Štefan Zápoľský brought a beautiful and noble Turkish woman Fatima among the war prisoners of one of his successful battles against Turks and dedicated her as servant to his wife Hedviga.

After a short time, Pasha Omar, the fiancé of Fatima visited Zápoľský accompanied by a large suite in order to buy out his beloved Fatima. He offered oriental treasures, camels and slaves, but Zápoľský turned them down. Finally he proposed to Omar the following: if he succeeded to dig a well at the castle rock, he would regain Fatima. Omar and his men started to work.

They were digging the well in the limestone rock four years, day and night, in summer and winter before they eventually found water. The joyous Omar took a glass of water to Zápoľský who let Omar take beautiful Fatima away. However, Omar before leaving said to Zápoľský: “Your heart is harder than a rock”. Since then the castle well is called the Well of Love.
