Salto de la Novia
Salto de la Novia or in English “Waterfall of the bride” is a 60 meters high waterfall located in Alto Palancia. Are you wondering why is it called “Waterfall of the bride”? A dramatic legend gave this waterfall its name. More curious? Let’s find out what happened.
Apparently, the tradition of the town required that when two young people were about to get married, they had to pass a curious, as well as dangerous, test. In the area where the river narrowed as it passed through the town, the girl jumped from one bank to the other before the attentive gaze of the entire public. If the jump was clean and everything went well, it implied that the marriage will be full of happiness. On the contrary, if she fell, it predicted a life full of unhappiness for the couple.
On one occasion the story did not have either of two expected endings.
One day, a couple wanted to follow tradition and show their love. While the whole town went to watch the bride’s jump into the river, the young woman did not calculate her distances properly, and she fell into the river and was trapped in a whirlpool. Her boyfriend, desperate, jumped to save her but could not do anything, both drowned and her bodies appeared lifeless hours later.
Due to this tragic story, the absurd tradition was questioned by the townspeople themselves, and the practice eventually disappeared from local couples.
