There is a New Year's tradition in Finland in which you melt a horseshoe shaped piece of tin and then pour it in water where it solidifies. By examining the new shape and its shadow you are supposed to get hints of things to come in the new year.
Below Pirunvuori (devil’s mountain) there is an imposing stone castle that was built in 1906 by painter Emil Danielsson (1882-1967) for his studio. The walls have been built in ‘dry masonry’ without mortar. The inside of the building is, nevertheless, quite fit to live in. The artist and his wife Aurora alias Saga spent their summers in the castle up to the 1960’s. The castle belongs nowadays to Sastamala commune and is open to visitors as a museum during summer.
