A lovely story

A lovely story
During the Iberian route through the province of Teruel and its capital, we visited the complex of the Mausoleum and Church and Tower of San Pedro, where there is the museum dedicated to Los Amantes de Teruel.

The story of the young lovers of Teruel (Juan Diego Martínez de Marcilla and Isabel Segura), apparently comes from and old tradition of the XIII century, where a poor boy and a rich girl fall in love, the relationship being badly looked upon by the rich family. They gave the suitor a period of five years to become rich, he went to war and when he returned the girl had already got married to somebody else. Juan Diego got to ask for a kiss from Isabel, but she refused and he died of sadness. The following day she went to look at the deceased and wanted to give him the kiss which she had refused him in life, and she suddenly died next to him.

Mythical lovers

What can be said for the Lovers of Teruel? I say that are found in the Church of San Pedro de Teruel. To know your history it is the best search the internet to find things like their names. I will just say that I left a little mausoleum cold, I really expected something else, but I enjoyed the colors.

Passion in Teruel

Great

The Mausoleum of the Lovers is in the complex made up also by the church of San Pedro. This story happened approximately in the XIII century, and has been the written inspiration for writers such as Tirso de Molina and the great Shakespeare, inspiring him to write the play“Romeo and Juliet”.
