The Three Mojes of Aislingen

Whenever there is a fire in the village of Aislingen, it never burns more than the ridge of the roof and doesn't spread further. This is thanks to the Three Mojes, three maidens who once crawled on all fours along a circle around the village. To honor their memory, a stone was erected with a relief depicting the three maidens, and every Saturday prayers are dedicated to them in the local church.
