The Tchesse aux Macrales (or "witch hunt") in Ermeton

  • Folklore and Tradition
From Saturday 02 to Sunday 03 March 2019.

In the 16th century, the Inquisition led 4 macralle (witch in Walloon) trials in Ermeton. The city replays this sad page of history with a touch of humour to highlight how cruel these were. The judgment often comes with a surprise...
