Legend of the Prophets

In the 16th century, lived in an isolated place of the northern part of the island, an eremite and rude shepherd, known as wild or fierce due to the few relationships he had with other people.



Saint Peter started to be venerated in Porto Santo by its inhabitants, especially by sea men, from the sixteenth century on. His image, the first to appear on the Island and that still today remains in the cult of the faithful, is involved in a legend.
