MARE THE WITCH

Discover the story of Mare, the herbalist who was unfairly declared a witch and burned at the stake at the Grimani-Morosini Castle in Svetvinčenat. Mare was a local herbalist and healer, and in 1632 her neighbours, the same people she healed and helped, accused her of making a pact with the devil, declared her a witch and burned her at the stake in the castle’s courtyard. You will witness the trial in the spectacular surroundings of the Venetian fortress, and while you follow the sad story of the difficult life women had in the dark middle ages, a true renaissance feast is being prepared in the background. Along with a dramatic tale and medieval evening, this experience will enchant you with old trades, a battle of knights and numerous other surprises...
