Welcome to Monção

It is said that during a siege by Castilian soldiers in 1368, a local townswoman named Deu-la-Deu Martins managed to scrabble together enough flour from starving citizens to make a few loaves of bread, and in a brazen show of plenty tossed them to the enemy with the message, ‘if you need any more, just let us know’. As the story goes, the disheartened Spaniards immediately withdrew to Spain.
