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.
