It is rumored that a real excessive wedding party took place here once, and lots of wine seduced the wedding guests to dissolute abuses. So people started even to bowl with breads and sausages, and then a ghost – in shape of a very old man – appeared who requested the attendants to stop this sacrilege immediately. When nobody followed this clear advice the ghost transformed all guests of the wedding dancing into basaltic columns immediately.
A shepherd just being nearby with his animals was asked by the ghost not to turn or look back when leaving the place. But the shepherd thought to be very tricky when looking back through his legs, so he was transformed into an iron sculpture. Now he is standing on one of these columns always dreaming of his last dance.
