ISTRA INSPIRIT: Mare the witch
Why the herbalist Mary was burned at the stake and how the executioners celebrated
Mare Radolovich will introduce you to this magnificent Venetian fortress. Mare was a local herbalist and healer who, in 1632, was accused of witchcraft by her neighbours, the same people that she had healed and helped. They accused her of making a pact with the devil, declared her a witch and condemned her to death by burning at the stake in the Castle’s courtyard. Did she survive? Discover the truth at this renaissance feast...
