Background information
It's narrated that in the clearing that dominates the mountain a golden chariot is hidden protected by the Devil in person and his spells. Anyone who tries to dig in the area discovers that everyone day he has to begin again from the start, in that the Devil covers up the hole every night.
It's said that one day Satan proposed to three men to accompany them to find the treasure, so long as the three of them promised not to say a word during the mysterious rites of the Devil. When the Demon, there in the clearing, starting to set up an artillery piece and threatened to direct it against these unfortunate men, they started to scream, interrupting in that way the sworn spell of silence and finding themselves in their own homes as if nothing had happened.
