The story

Brazilian legends


Legends in Brazil are numerous, directly influenced by the miscegenation in the origin of the Brazilian people. We must take into account that a legend does not mean a lie, nor an absolute truth, what we must consider is that a story to be created, defended and most importantly, to have survived in people's memory, it must have at least one portion of true facts.
Many researchers, historians, or folklorists claim that the legends are only a figment of the popular imagination, but as we know the legends in many peoples are "the books in memory of the wisest."
We must also consider the difference between Myth and Legend. Myth is the character that the legend deals with, as the Legend is the Story about a certain Myth.

From now on we will know some Brazilian legends.
