Many men had asked for hand in marriage but she insisted to wait for her 'truelove'. One day a handsome young man from Venice, Baracas, passed by the cliff, on his way to the Crusades. As soon as their eyes met, they fell in love! Baracas, however, had to leave for his mission and the girl patiently waited for him to return.
One day, as she was overlooking the sea she was bitten by a snake which made her verry ill and she lost her beauty. When Baracas returned from the war and saw the pain she was going through, his love for her grew even stronger. He thenkneeled down and asked her hand in marriage, suddenly a Miracle happened! The power of love prevailed an the girl overcame all illness. The couple got married and every evening they would go to the cliff of ' Baracas' and thank the sea for bringing them together.
