The interest on this mythology has increased in the last years.

In view of the growing curiosity, we decided to upload books on Celtic mythology on our website.
Celtic myths come from ancient civilizations in Ireland and Great Britain. Although they did not leave written texts, their oral tradition transcended both time and space and references could be found in Roman mythology. Also, much of the transcription of Celtic myths was done in the Middle Ages by Christian monks, to leave evidence of stories that were popularly shared and recited in the courts of the kingdom in Ireland.
Among the most successful feats among the listeners were those of King Arthur who survived together with the people in an outlaw world, victim of the most inexplicable magical events. Similarly, the king’s romances were recorded, as they were the favorites of the common people. The most outstanding symbols of Celtic mythology are those related to destruction, transformation and rebirth.
