The legend of “Condeixa-a-Nova” and “Condeixa-a-Velha”

November 17, 2017

Once upon a time, a very long time ago, a member of nobility, the Count of Condeixa, who had two women: his wife, the old one and his mistress, the young one.


One day he met them on a bridge.


When the Count was moving towards his wife, the old one, the old ladies their present, who were feeding the pigeons, said:


– Count, leave the old one!


When the Count moved towards the mistress, the young one, the old ladies said:


– Count, leave the young one!


Since then, on one side of the bridge was born “Condeixa-a-Velha” (Condeixa-the-old) and on the other side was born “Condeixa-a-Nova” (Condeixa-the-young).
