Grândola, small village in Alentejo, with about 45 inhabitants in mid-1527, met at the time a huge variety of hunting with immediately captivated the prince Jorge de Lencastre, son of King John II D.
It was so much his adoration for Grândola that much for his influence, spent about 20 years later, from village to village.
At that time, hunting and riding were the true passion of the prince who spent much of his time engrossed in the bush, proudly displaying their achievements Hunter, later in the day. Given his love for place, a palace was built just for the night when there was, however, a preference for Grândola was such that it was adopting increasingly said palace as his residence most of the time.
Now one day, Jorge D. contemplated the beautiful sight of his palace when he saw arise the same portentous boar under your window.
Anticipating the beautiful delicacy that this would create, D. Jorge hastily summoned his feral for which were initiated at the animal chase, noting however that their most loyal and competent hunter was absent in Alcacer do Sal, at a hearing of justice. Note that Grândola was quite underdeveloped at the time, not collecting any services, nor justice.
However, the animal contemplated by luck or fate, managed to deftly slip through the woods, leaving his pursuers with a huge frustration.
D. Jorge was so annoyed that justified the situation with the absence of such Hunter: If he had not come out of Grândola, the boar would not have the same luck, he thought.
