The legend of the House of love

The legend is born in the romantic period, in the early nineteenth century. "In distant times, Laorens, poor and orphan and Saubade, daughter of a wealthy farmer, is loved." They found themselves, despite parental opposition, in a cave, to the immensity of the waves. There, they were the oath to love until death. One day, the storm gronda in the Bay of Biscay, and sea, offshore wind-driven rose more quickly than usual, taking lovers. They called "Chambre d'Amour" the fatal cave that attracts, still, in love and curious.
