  • Rincon de la vieja combo Tour

Rincon de la Vieja translates to “Corner of the Old Woman” in reference a local legend of a princess whose lover was thrown into the volcano when her father learned of their affair.

According to legend, she went on living on the side of the volcano where she gave birth to a son, who she eventually threw into the volcano to be with his father.

For the remainder of her life, the princess went on living near the crater where she acquired healing powers. From then on, her home earned the name “Rincon de la Vieja.”
