Trasmoz is a small village right by the Spanish snow-covered mountain Moncayo. This village is cursed with a spell that only the pope can lift and has a long history with witchcraft.

A long story short: in the old castle on the hill in Trasmoz the occupants made fake coins. To hide what they were doing and to keep the people from investigate them it was said that witches and sorcerers were in there rattling chains and boil magic potions. This explanation worked well and ever since then the village is associated with witches and witchcraft.

This lead to the people of Trasmoz being banned from the Catholic church. The church never forgave the defeat and, with the permission from Pope Julius II, they caste a powerful curse over the village. This curse can only be lifted by a Pope but this haven't happened until this day.

A village with a very interesting story. Today there is only about 63 people still living there, and half of them still lives there permanently.

When we visited on a windy and cold day we didn't met anyone at all. It felt like we were being watched from the small windows in the old houses, not knowing which apartments was abandoned and which there were people living in.
