The legend regarding the village name

There is a legend of the name "Buendía" (Good Day). At the time of the Christian reconquest, these territories served as the border. In one battle among the Moors and Christians, where the number of the Moorish army was superior, the Christian captain seeing the coming defeat, started to pray to the Virgin. At the end of the day, the Christians achieved the victory. The captain kneeled and gave thanks to the Virgin and he spoke to the soldiers: "Soldiers, we had a good day today." Since that time, the name Fuentesauco was changed to Buendía.

There is nothing written about this story, but it has been transmitted orally. There still exists the wellspring of Fuente del Sauco. In the form of procession with the reference to the legend, "The entry of Moors and Christians", has been recovered after 52 years of neglect.
