Chirea Furis (Stone Cross)

Legend has it that...
Near Shitolem (Shiva Todem) in Loutolim, there was a path going to Orgao, it is said that a lady dressed in white was seen in the corner and at that spot the (sows) pigs used to litter. So to get rid of this, the villagers decided to enlarge the road by cutting the hill. They came across the large stone, from which Bostao Fernandes of Askona carved out a 6ft. cross and placed it where the image was see. All these things stopped instantly. According to the faith of villagers it is said to be a "MIRACLE CROSS".
