Legend of Sleeping India
Flor del Aire is called the Indian princess, daughter of Urracá, the fiercest cacique who fought against the conquistadores in the lands of the Isthmus of Panama. To his disgrace, he fell in love with one of the pale faced warriors who tried to conquer his people. For that impossible love he despised the one that Yaraví offered him, the bravest of the young people of his tribe.
Yaraví, desperate, committed suicide by throwing himself from the top of a mountain before the exorbitant eyes of Flor del Aire. She, for not betraying her race, never saw Spanish again. She walked through mountains and valleys crying her misfortune, until death surprised her on the beaches that bathe the Caribbean Sea, looking towards the beloved mountains where she had been born. The mountains, sympathetic, to perpetuate that sad love story, copied his figure and that is what tourists who come to El Valle de Anton, The Mountain of Sleeping India.
