Under the long-since disappeared San Ginés church in the Historic District, there existed the domes of an older building, Roman in origin, that would inspire a famous legend. The story goes that from this spot one can reach the Tajo River through underground passages. The story also says that it was Hercules himself who dug the tunnels, although there doesn't seem to be any real, scientific basis for this belief. In any case, various excavations that have set out to prove that these caves do really exist have only served to discover some more rooms dating from the Roman era. They cannot be visited.
