The imagination of inhabitants of Alpine areas has generated various mythical animals. The difficult access to wild areas, the isolation of populations and the fear of a largely unknown nature has thus given rise to many fantasy creatures that are added to devils, masks, gnomes, etc. Among these animals, one of the most mysterious is the basilisk.
