    Pico Sacro (Sacred Peak)

    According to the legend recorded in the Calixtinu Codex, which recounts the arrival of the body of the Apostle Santiago (St. James) to pico sacro (Sacred peak) in Galicia (Spain). There lived a queen. His name was Lupa, mythical ally of the Romans.

    The disciples of the apostle who carried his body to be buried in the Campus Stellae (now named Santiago de Compostela), asked the queen a cart and oxen. The queen sent the disciples to fetch them to the "Pico Sacro" where the dragon and the wild bulls who lived there kill the disciples

    When they were about to die the apostolos knelt and began praying, getting slay the dragon and tame the bulls.

    Seeing this miracle the queen decided to convert to Christianity.

    -This is the summary of the legend from this place...


    Currently there are no bulls or dragons (I would like to see one hehehe).
    But, we can found this chapel, who was a part for an ancient convent.

    Hope you like this!
