The history of the village goes back to the 13th century when the castle was built on the cliff. The legend says that the local landlord kidnaped the neighbour’s wife and shut her inside his castle just being built. However, the wife’ s nanny made an agreement with the devil and induced him to transform his sons into ravens. The son ravens then tore down the stones of the castle being built, freed the woman and built a new castle nearby. This castle became Holloko (raven rock) and the village was also named after it.Back
