Leyend of Antela lagoon
The lagoon of Antela presents clear affinities with the Celtic world and tells us that the mosquitoes and other insects found in the place are considered the enchanted figures of King Arthur and his knights.
According to the legend, at the bottom of the lagoon there was a city that for its sin of idolatry to pay homage to the rooster received the punishment of being flooded by the waters.
Today the figure of the rooster in bell towers and towers still stands out. According to the parish priest Abavides, it was a punishment from God for separating himself from the doctrine preached by Jesus Christ, who dressed as a beggar was knocking door to door through the city asking for alms; to the being rejected by all the city received the punishment to disappear in the waters.
The most surprising thing is that in the works carried out in the dried up areas remains of circular buildings have been found, as well as arrowheads and other objects that indicate the primitive existence of a city under the waters, possibly founded by Anfíloco, an emigrated Greek, who , according to Strabo, settled after the Trojan War in these regions.
