The Cave of the Thief: the bandit Joan Serra
It is said that in a cave near  the fountain of ' la Pasquala', in a place nowadays of difficult access for the great amount of vegetation and pinewood that has grown, lived the fearsome bandit inhabitant of Valls (a town near Montblanc) called Joan Serra, best known  with the nickname of 'la Pera'. This cave is a perfect place to hide, has several rooms and  places of very difficult access.
Joan Pera stayed there for a lot of time. When people discovered his hiding place they went to capture him, but they were deceived because he knew the cave a lot.
It is explained that not  many years ago two guns were found hidden there.

The saint Crist of the Blood and  divine Punishment
The Fraternity and Congregation of the Very Pure Blood, of Montblanc, had in the church-hospital of Sant Marçal a crucifix that was worshiped a lot. During the Civil War, on 19 July of 1936, it was burned, but before taking it to the bonfire, two inhabitants with the rifles broke its  legs, and they threw it away  to the fire.
Another version explains that before they made some mocks, they took it and placed it in front of  the image of the Virgin of the Pains, face to face, as if they were a couple, exclaiming: "look how they dance". It is said that as the crucifix was higher than the other image, they broke its legs. When they got tired of it they loaded all images in a truck and took  them  to the river and burned them.
It is said that these two people died soon after this. One of them during  the war, with his legs destroyed by a howitzer, and a little afterwards the other one, while he was hunting a shotgun  twisted  and, accidentally shot his legs.  He died because of the wounds. The facts, in both cases, were interpreted like a divine punishment for their misdeed
