Among all of them, stands out the legend that attributes to the location being the owner of an important treasure as a result of the flight of 5 Moorish kings who, escaping from different conflicts in their lands, decided to head towards our coasts with precious luggage (loaded with coins and riches).
Although the attribution of the arrival of the mythical treasure has also been the responsibility of Tasufin Ibn Ali and that has not done more than fuel for centuries the arrival, and at the same time the desire, of intrepid discoverers of fortunes to seize said treasure without taking into account account the damage caused to the environment. ANTONIO DE LA NARI, A LIFE DEDICATED TO THE CAVE
