There are many myths and legends that talk about St James appearing in battles and conflicts, usually on a white horse. One legend exists in the Canyon Rio Lobos. Villagers from Ucero, recall that Santiago throw his sword into the Canyon and where it landed the Templar hermitage of San Bartolome was constructed, where you can clearly see carved on a ‘canecillo’ the monogram of Christ typical of the ones found on the French Camino. There are few buildings that provoke such admiration and controversy as the mysterious Hermitage of San Bartolome. It is believed to have originally been called San Juan de Otero by the Knights Templar.
