Feel the energy at this special place at Pizol
Note the three distinctive fir trees on the way, which direct you towards a very special place. On an small hillock alongside the path, on the Heidi Trail, you will come to "place of power" which has the character of a cult place. Whether or not cult rituals took place here is not known. The energy conditions here would not rule this out. Generally, in the times before Christ, cult places were used for fertility rituals because for people, animals and plants to flourish was important for their existence. According to the times or the cultures, there were different rituals involving dancing, singing, making sacrifices, prayers etc. whereby they tried to please God so that he would listen to their requests.
