The lord, who is building a castle on a steep cliff (the devil, perhaps), makes a deal with twelve stonemasons. Despite their many efforts, they are simply unable to build the castle of Déva, as the walls collapse over and over again. The stonemasons make a secret agreement, according to which the wife who first comes to visit her husband must be sacrificed and her body burnt and mixed with the mortar in order to aid the successful completion of the castle.
