The legend of Eguzkilore: protection and magic in the Basque Country
According to an ancient Basque legend, when the sun's rays touch the earth, the Eguzkilore, also known as the "sun flower", blooms in the fields. This beautiful yellow flower was said to possess a special power that protected those who wore it. Legend has it that it was bestowed by magical beings living deep in the forests, who wished to protect people from evil and negative influences. The Eguzkilore became a traditional amulet in the Basque Country, used to ward off evil spirits and protect those who wore it. It was hung at the entrance to houses, worn as jewelry or given as a gift to loved ones as a symbol of love and protection.
