The legend of Domofole
The legend of
Domofole
QUEEN TEODOLINDA AND THE OROBIE ALPS
Why are the Orobie Alps called like
this?

There are a lot of legends about our area. One of these explains the
names of some of our mountains …
Once, our area was ruled by one queen.
Her name was Queen Teodolinda
She was convinced that in the mountains opposite the
castle of Domofole , her castle, there could be gold.
So she organized an expedition of men, which did not return.

She was sure of her theory…
but they did not return.

After her death it was discovered that there really was gold in those
mountains which since then have been called Orobie.‘Oro’ is the
Italian for gold.

They say that during clear summer nights you can see the ghost of
queen Teodolinda looking at those mountains with a melancholic
face.

It isn’t the only legend of this place but this is one of the most
interesting. We love it and the castle.
