16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Cerro Saraja

Saraja was an enchanted lagoon possessed by the spirit of evil. Anyone who for one reason or another, away from the city in the direction of Saraja, was immediately "tempted" and led to the charm. It was said that on full moon nights, one could see on the sands, near the Saraja lagoon, a beautiful woman who danced to the music of delicious music that emerged from the dunes. The charming dancer with her grace slowly led anyone who passed by to the very center of the lagoon where it sank forever.
