Cramming a coin on a tree trunk and praying is considered by many as a way to recover from illness. That's what the staff around the tourist spot in Gwynedd discovered, after they investigated the cause of some trees near the village of Portmeirion, in northern Wales, always covered with coins.

When the first prayer tree was cut down to extend the path from the Peak district to the Scottish Highlands, the surrounding trees continued to be covered with coins. Currently, there are dozens of such trees and this once stimulated the curiosity of real estate manager Meurig Jones.

According to Jones' understanding, this strange habit dating back to the 1700s, they are considered "wish trees". People believe that when an infected person can put a coin into the tree trunk, they will be healthy again. Disease will be carried away by the tree. If anyone took those coins out to use, they would face a disaster.

Today, many people still believe in this legend. Some do not believe it, but when they come here to visit, they still put money in. They say this action is "just for fun", or sow hope for good luck in health.
