There's something really magical about Wales, and it's not just the amazing scenery.

Devil's Bridge, near Aberystwyth
The Devil himself is said to have made this bridge to steal the soul of the first person that walked over it. After failing to take the soul of an old lady, he was never seen there again. Think twice before you cross; he just might come back.

Llyn-y-Fan-Fach, Carmarthenshire
Mythical fairy dwelling. The Myddfai legend refers to this lake as the place where a local man first saw a woman-fairy, who he later married. She warned him she would leave if he struck her three times. In short, she returned to the lake. There's a moral in there somewhere.

Patrishow Church, Gwent
People claim to have been miraculously healed after visiting St Ishow's holy well.

Twrog's Stone, Maentwrog
A giant called Saint Twrog supposedly threw a large stone into the village of Maentwrog. The odd stone with large finger impressions now sits in St Twrog's Church. The legend says that if you rub the stone today, you are destined to return to the village. Or a genie will appear. Or something.

Pwll-y-Wrach, Flint Mountain
Enchanted, evil beings are said to lurk under the waters of Witches Pool. When a cuckoo sings in the Flint Mountain the beings emerge to inflict death. Which is always something to look forward to.
