Niedzica has a rather gothic legend of its own: One of its former owners, Hungarian Sebastián Berzeviczy, travelled to South America in the 18th Century and allegedly fell in love with Incan princess Barbola Atahualpa Inca Ulloa, a union which produced a daughter, Umina. Umina then met and married Andrés Amaru, the nephew of the influential Incan revolutionary Túpac Amaru II. From this union, their son Anton was born, whose lineage posed a threat to the ruling Spaniards. Before Grandpa Sebastián fled with the family to Italy, they were handed The Sacred Scrolls of the Incas, which (of course) held the location of hidden treasure. Andrés died suspiciously in Italy and Sebastián took Umina and Anton back to Niedzica, where Umina was allegedly assassinated sometime later. Anton had been intrusted with the supposed whereabouts of Incan treasure, but took it to his grave. Needless to say, some still like to believe that the family hid Incan treasure somewhere within the castle or on the castle grounds!
