Did you know?
What do we call its inhabitants?
Back from hunting, the village priest was questioned by some dawdlers:
“So pastor, good hunting, caw, caw? Brandishing a shrike and a sparrow at a bad sort called Darnaga. He answered: I got two, one of which was an Ampusian! ”
Upset, they made off. From the time of this story and ever since the inhabitants of Ampus became known as… the Darnagas.
