LEGENDS i'm from a little town of Spain that is famous because have it one of the most significant and best-preserved monuments left by the Romans on the Iberian Peninsula: The Aqueduct bridge of Segovia. It is among the most important symbols of my city. According to a popular legend, a woman who worked as a water carrier, fed up with hauling her pitcher through the steep streets of the city, made a pact with the devil: the devil could take her soul if water would arrive at her doorstep before the rooster crowed. When night fell, a great storm fell upon the city. None of its citizens except the woman knew that this was no normal storm, but instead was the devil working to keep his part of the bargain. However, she repented and prayed all night to avoid fulfilling the pact. According to the legend, the rooster crowed just before the devil could lay the final stone, and thus the woman's soul was saved. The woman confessed her sin to the citizens who, after spraying the arches with holy water, were happy to accept the new addition to the city. And this is the legend of the great bridge that cross through the city centre. I'd like very much to know if on your cities have any legends.  Tell me, please. I'd like to know it!
