The lookout point where this devil is located is called the Devil's Pulpit. Today's blogpost text is a condensed version of the legend which I translated.
There once was a poor farmer who was so desperate that sold his soul to the devil in order to feed his family. The devil fulfilled his side of the bargain and the farmer became very rich and arrogant.
Over time he developed a guilty conscious about his pact with the devil and thought he could get out of it by building a chapel dedicated to God to atone for his transgression. He hired the best workers and the building was progressing quickly and started to be filled with ornate decorations.
One day as the farmer was inspecting the progress on his chapel by himself, the devil appeared in a fury. He bellowed at the farmer "what do you think you are doing? This was not part of the bargain!" and then let out a loud roar and charged at the small chapel. At the same time a small earthquake caused the outcrop to break off from the mountain sending the farmer to the valley below and the destroyed chapel fell on top of him killing and burying him.
Ever since then this point is called the Devil's Pulpit.
