On the road towards Carrera there is a hole in which ancient tales say that a golden calf is hidden, and its dung is also gold, while its saliva is silver.

This calf belonged to a warlock, who kept it on a trunk its whole life, but when the warlock died the calf got out of the trunk where it was kept and hid on the Carrera hole.

To get him out and own it a lot of courage is needed, because a ferocious battle needs to take place with the animal.
