LEGEND OF PEGO DAS PIAS (ODEMIRA)

THE LEGENDS OF ALENTEJO

LEGEND OF PEGO DAS PIAS (ODEMIRA)
Legend has it that a farmer had a daughter who was the apple of his eye. One day his daughter was very sick. The father, like daughter was the best thing in his life, promised a Saint a yoke of oxen and a gold grade if her daughter would get well.

The daughter was cured, but the farmer did not pay what he had promised.
As his daughter had the habit of going drinking water in Pego das Pias, which was also where the oxen were drinking, the daughter of the farmer was delighted.
Only those who are able to hold the gold grade and oxen that come to the top of the water on the morning of St. John, can disenchant the daughter of the farmer.
They say many people have seen the grid and oxen, but no one could hold them.

Between St. Louis and Odemira, situated in the north of St. Saviour Parish in the area of ​​Ameixiais isolated among high rocks and lush greenery, there is a very special place, the Pego das Pias.
Its name comes from the various circular cavities in the rock, apparently caused by swirls at a time when the level of contamination at the site was higher than the current, at least judging from the marks left on the rock. The strength of the flow of water associated with the area of ​​the slope should have triggered swirls that pierced the rock creating so-called "sinks".
The Pego das Pias has almost no marks of human intervention and has remained as a kind of natural landmark of the region, prompting a huge interest and was visited by many curious and nature lovers.
