On the Trail of the Walloon Treasure Hunters

Szlak Waloński

They arrived in our mountains in the eleventh century, just after the Emperor brought a spear that cut through Jesus Christ’s side to Chrobry the King. They were a secret association, the Medieval Masonry. They tamed demons and the Mountain Ghost guarded their paths. They carved in code symbols in rocks which today’s scientists are not able to decipher. They tore out the most precious treasure from the ground – the gold. Their paths have been forgotten for 700 years. And then we found the entrance to the maze.
