It rises near the old monastery of Penha Longa, a high hill that serves as pedestal to a stone cross. It is known by the “Penedo dos Ovos”, which also has its legend.

It was said that beneath him an enchanted treasure was hidden, which would belong to anyone who could bring him down by the force of the eggs. An old woman of those places, she kept her eye on the treasure and silently gathered the eggs she could get, and when it seemed appropriate, she began work.

Needless to say, it shattered the provision, and the boulder became a pity and totally intact. Even today there are those who suppose that the mosses that cover it are yellowed by the egg yolks that the old woman threw.
