There exists a fascinating legend about the way Matsesta springs appeared.

The birth of Matsesta.

At night when a daughter was born in the family of a highlander Kerenduk, the mountain river reflected the Moon like a flame. So Kerenduk following the tradition of that times called his daughter Matsesta - which means flame water. Parents loved their daughter with all their hearts and she was very attentive and caring to them.

The healing water.

Once when her parents got very ill a holly man told Matsesta that there was a magic underground source which healing waters could cure her parents. The girl swore to get the water at any price. She got into the cave and started an unequal fight with an evil underground spirit that preserved the water from people.

The victory price.

The brave girl conquered the evil spirit and digged the source way to people. But she gave her life to do that. Since that time, in honor of that brave girl, the curing water that brings people health is called in the name of the wonderful girl - Matsesta!
