Urban Legends and SuperstitionsGrydestenen - Egense, Denmark

in Urban Legends and Superstitions

Grydestenen på Nordfyn anses for at være Fyns tredje største sten. Der går mange fortællinger om den i den fynske folklore og overtro. I følge en af fortællingerne vender stenen sig, når den lugter brød. Måske er det rest af oldtidens offerritualer.
