A legend says that the three fortresses, Soimos, Dezna and Siria were built by three sisters. The first said, “If God helps me, my fortress will be finished tomorrow.” The second said: “My fortress will also be ready tomorrow with God’s help.” The third sister said defiantly: “Even if God doesn’t help me, my fortress will still be ready tomorrow.” As punishment for her disbelief, after the constructions were completed, the fortresses collapsed. Virgos turned into three white snakes, each wearing a crown and a golden key in her mouth. The legend says that snakes appear each year expecting their liberator to take the crowns and keys from them. Only then they will turn back into girls and the fortresses will rise again in all their splendor.
