Mysterium Tours does NOT craft typical guided tours for tourists; these are immersive storytelling experiences about local legends and tales not always associated with the building we stand in front of.

A few tips on how to properly enjoy the tour: put aside your phone and the modern way of seeing things; let yourself be carried away by the stories of war and honour that will be told and follow each step carefully. Open your mind and play with your imagination; this will provide you with a glimpse of the past, a glance into the ancient history and stories, born from the superstition of the old times gone by.
