Legend has it that the original nucleus of Toppo was further south, around the Lady of Mount Carmel church but that its inhabitants fled when the Huns arrived and took refuge on the slopes of Mt Ciaurlec where they built the current town. Archaeological excavations have in fact found traces of a likely pre-Christian religious site just a short distance from the church, which was dedicated to St Vitus and St Modestus historically.
