According to popular tradition, St. George was a Roman politician born in the 3rd century in Cappadocia (Turkey). The Holy, who served under the orders of the Emperor Diocleciano, refused to execute an edict of the emperor which obliged him to persecute Christians and for this reason was martyred and beheaded by his contemporaries. Very soon he started to revere as a Saint in the eastern part of the Roman Empire and immediately appeared fantastic stories related to your figure. The Legend of St.

George legend versions are diverse and varied, but the most widespread land catalans says that there was a Dragon that attacked right and left the Kingdom in lands of Cappadocia. The people decided that to prevent the attacks they would give two lambs every day to be devoured by the dragon and thus avoid the dragon attacked the town to satisfy your hunger. Until one day the lambs began to dwindle and it was agreed that they would send to a person and a lamb; making every day a draw was made and sent that person to the cave of the dragon. A day in the draw came out the name of the Princess. At that time, the King offered wealth to the family of those who take his place, however the people refused and reproached him that many had already been without relatives and that the King had to be no exception. Thus, without alternative, was walking until the Lair of the dragon and when I went in direction, found St. George that, to hear your situation, volunteered to rescue it and slew the Dragon nailing the sword in the heart. A rose was born from the blood that flowed. The King offered to San Jorge riches, however he rejected them and requested that occupied the town. He also built a church in his name, which flowed miraculous water that healed the sick.
