Devil´s Wall is a national natural monument in the north of the Czech Republic . It is located approximately 5 km northeast of the town of Český Dub. Devil´s Wall is a remnant of the flat basalt ridge composing of of horizontally laid prisms, whose regular shape looks like a work of human hands. The Devil´s Wall was considerably damaged by the end of the 19th century. The most valuable part of the basalt wall taken away and used as material for production of road gravel. The Devil´s Wall is now a protected nature monument. It is 1 km long and the total protected area occupies approximately 20hectares. On the top of the ridge of the Devil´s Wall there is a massive block called Devil´s throne, and about 350m to the south you can identify a boulder called the Devil's Head. The Devil´s Wall has been protected since 2nd March 1964. The wall stretches in a straight line between Bezděz Castle and Světlá pod Ještědem village, which had initiated a number of legends. According to one of them, once upon a time, devils used to live in this region and they would play bad tricks on farmers. One of the farmers was so brave that he went to the hell to make a bet with the devils. They agreed that if he wins, the devils will move away. If not, the farmer will lose his soul. The devil´s task was to pick up all stones from the farmers´ fields till the early morning and make a wall between Bezděz hill and Ještěd Mountain. At dawn it looked like that the farmer would lose, so he -in dispair - crowed “cock-a-doodle-doo” thus woke up all roosters. The angry devil cast the remaining stones and disappeared. The thrown away stones then became the hill where now the castle Bezděz is located.
