The Legend of the Capu d'Ota

Overlooking the village of Ota, the rock of Capu d'Ota appears to threaten homes. Travelers, curious, often ask the villagers if they feel safe despite this impressive block of rock above their heads. To this serene, 'i paesani' (villagers) respond that monks take turns to hold the rock with very large strings. Therefore, they are totally safe. Divine blessing? Trust in their good star? or simply malice villagers entertaining their guests? Source Tourist Office of West Corsica.
