It is said that at the time of Jesus’ death the mountain was split by an earthquake, forming 3 deep vertical crevices. One of these is known as the Turk’s Grotto. A legend tells that a Turk (Saracen pirate) refused to believe in Jesus’ deity, and in the fact that the split of the mountain was caused by his death unless he could put his hand into the rock. In that instant the rock liquefied under his hand and his imprint can still be seen.
Visitors are fascinated by the mystery enveloping the place and the rough sea hitting the rocks.
