Just below the junction of the Ribeira de Arronches and River Caia next to the bridge of Santa Maria, is a rock called Pedra da Moura (Moorish rock)
Legend says that the rock is enchanted by a delighted Moorish princess betrothed by her father to a noble, though she was in love with a prince that was in the war.
The father charmed her to the stone and every St John´s night the Princess sits on the rock singing songs dedicated to the prince.
It is said that those who pass that night by the stone will also be enchanted.
