Katova skala Sklabinský Podzámok

according to a dark legend, people who were troublesome to the owners of Sklabiňa Castle used to be thrown to their death from this cliff, whose name means “executioner’s rock”. According to legend, a young woman is imprisoned behind the cliff face, sitting on the treasure of her tormentor, who shut her there and cursed her because she refused to marry him. Once every hundred years a cry of “Release me!” comes from the rock. The maiden is waiting to be rescued by a handsome youth. The peak offers a beautiful semi-circular view of the Veľká Fatra, a part of the Turiec Basin and the Lúčanská Malá Fatra. It is an easy hour’s climb along the red trail from Sklabinský Podzámok.
