Long Description:
"An Andorran legend features the devil and a cross. The cross exists and can be visited, but of its seven arms, one has disappeared. Legend has it that there were seven companions in Prats, one was very cowardly and feared the devil. The others decided to play a prank on him. They invited Canillo to lunch and gave him a shotgun to shoot the devil if he appeared. The shotgun was prepared so that when firing it did not damage. Accidentally, in a hostel the innkeeper noticed the problem and fixed it. When one of his prankster friends disguised himself as a devil, he shot and killed him. The next day, when they went to look for the corpse, they saw that the devil had taken it and with it one of the arms of the cross."
