São Pedro de Moel legend

São Pedro de Moel legend

A small town in the middle of Leiria´s Pinewood with a great beach, characterized by a cold and agitated water, that is well known among surfers and bodyboarders.

Legend says that the Duchess of Caminha, daughter of the Counts of Faro, daily cried the death of her husband in a huge and imposing rock resulting hence its name, “Penedo da Saudade” , on top of which is currently a lighthouse with the same name. There are still those who claim that the lamentations of the young widow can still be heard in the middle of the sea cliff murmurs.
