As we read in an Arthurian Legend, riding through the forest Merlin’s disciple Guineban ran into a group of young men and women dancing in the woods. Whishing to impress one of the ladies, Guineban tested his magic: the youngsters would keep dancing forever until the best knight of all times arrived to free them. Since then, it was a called The Forest of no Return. Do you dare visit it?
