The Pampilhosa da Serra Midwife’s Legend
It is said that once a Moorish community inhabited the cave of a place called “Ponte da Covilhã”. One day a Moorish Lady was having difficulty in labour. Her husband, in panic, went downtown to look for the region’s Midwife. Many people warned her about the Moors menace, that they were quite dangerous and might, inclusively, kill her. The Midwife filled with courage attended the pregnant lady anyway, delivering a fine baby. As everything went so well, the Moor, pleased, offered the Midwife four coal stones.
Walking back home, the midwife stare at the stones and, as she found no utility in them, threw them away. After a second thought, she decided to keep two of them.
The next morning, she looked at the two coal stones and realised that they had transformed into two beautiful Gold stones. She immediately came back to the place where she dropped the other two, but they were already vanished.
