La leyenda del Drago Milenario


Una tarde en la remota antigüedad, cierto navegante mercader llegaba de las costas mediterráneas en busca de sangre de Drago, (muy preciada en la época y de gran importancia en la elaboración de ciertas preparaciones de la farmacopea) y desembarcó por la playa de San Marcos, de Icod de los Vinos para llevar a efecto su lucrativo propósito.


El drago más famoso de todos: El Drago Milenario

Estando ya en la playa, se fijó en unas jóvenes muchachas que se divertían bañándose en aquella cálida tarde de verano. El mercader, de carácter avaricioso, se propuso poseer a alguna de aquellas bellas guanches y se lanzó a perseguirlas. Logró dar alcance a una y pensó en lo fácil que le había resultado. Pero no reparó ni por un momento en la inteligente mirada de la doncella a quien tenía cautiva.

Ésta trató astutamente de conquistar el corazón del extraño viajero, y mostrando signos de consideración y amistad le ofreció algunos hermosos frutos de la tierra. 

Para aquel navegante que venía detrás de la sangre del Drago, y traía metido en la imaginación y en el alma el mito helénico de las Hespérides, los frutos que aquella dama de esta tierra le ofreciera, pudieron muy bien parecerle las manzanas del mítico jardín. Mientras él comía gustosamente desprevenido, la bella aborigen saltó con la agilidad propia de una gacela al otro lado de un barranco cercano. Y se escondió entre los árboles mientras el confuso mercader intentaba adivinar su silueta en el denso bosque.


El viajero sorprendido en principio trató de perseguirla de cerca, pero vio con sorpresa que algo se interponía en su camino, que un árbol extraño movía sus hojas como dagas infinitas, y cuyo tronco serpenteaba amenazadoramente, protegiendo tras su asombrosa presencia a la indefensa y bella muchacha.

Dicen que entonces el navegante, preso del terror, lanzó un arma afilada que llevaba en la mano, que fue a clavarse en el tronco de aquel árbol.Y empezó a gotear de la herida producida un líquido rojo y denso que parecía sangre, la sangre líquida del Drago

Hasta aquí, coincide bastante la información que he encontrado. Lo que más cambia es el final de la leyenda:

Final 1: Ante tal visión el hombre, aturdido, huyó como alma que lleva el diablo y, una vez pudo alcanzar su embarcación, se perdió mar adentro.
Final 2: Confuso y atemorizado el hombre huyó laderas abajo, se metió en su pequeña barca y se alejó de la costa; porque iba pensando en su corazón, que había sorprendido en el jardín a una de las Hespérides a la que salió a defender el mítico Dragón.

  8. Me encantó este árbol cuando estuve en Icod, hace ya varios años... La leyenda es muy bonta, sólo conocía uno de los finales.

  9. Me suena que el final es el segundo, pero como siempre cada leyenda varía mucho. Muy bonita por cierto la historia. Igual de bonito que el fabuloso drago milenario, una joya de mi isla.
    Gracias por hablar de el, por este homenaje.
    Un beso muy grande

  11. María Pilar: El Drago Milenario es impresionante, al igual que el resto de la isla de Tenerife. Un lugar precioso, sin duda. Me alegro de que te haya gustado :) Un beso, Pilar

    Ozna: Jaja, gracias por pasarte querida Ozna. Tú tienes un blog lleno de leyendas e historias, además de tus bellos poemas. Eso sí que es magia :P Un beso, amiga asturiana

    Blanca: Yo he estado en un par de ocasiones y también me gustó mucho. Es enorme :) Jaja, ya sabías más que yo, porque no conocía la leyenda hasta ahora, así que todo de ella es nuevo para mí. Un beso, Blanca

    ResponderEliminar
  12. Ana: Sinceramente, yo no sé si sólo hay un posible y único final, o si hay varias versiones. Encontré estos dos, en el que uno destaca por triste en mi opinión. El Drago Milenario no creo que deje indiferente a nadie. Destaca por tener un tamaño realmente impresionante, y la edad que le echan tampoco es para menos. Pero lo pienso investigar igualmente, a ver si encuentro más o menos la supuesta edad real, que le empiezan a echar años y no paran. Me gustó muchísimo vuestra isla desde el primer momento, por su belleza, paisajes, flores… vida, temperatura, incluso la gente, que en todo momento se mostró muy amable, desde la que iba por la calle hasta la del hotel. Es un lugar que me encanta. Es diferente. Y tu hermana Raquel me incita jaja, porque hace entradas de vuestra isla y como me gusta, he estado en un par de ocasiones, tengo mucho material fotográfico, algún libro y demás… Pasan estas cosas, jaja. Un beso =)

  13. Dios, me encanta!!!!!!!!! Me encantan las leyendas!!!! :D:D:D
    Poco más puedo decir, que inspira mi imaginación y que si, en efecto, la sangre de Dragón formaba parte de muchas farmacopeas (maldita Historia de la Farmacia, habré aprendido cosas y todo? xD)

    ResponderEliminar
  14. Marco: Madre mía, jaja. Acabo de ver tus comentarios acumulados en el correo. No me lo esperaba jaja. Sí que te ha gustado la leyenda, sí, jaja. ¿Historia de la Farmacia es una de tus asignaturas? Claro que habrás aprendido xD, aunque yo esto lo conozco por leyendas no por estudiar, pero también es cierto que yo no estoy por la rama de la medicina ni similares. Un beso :)

  17. Hello anonymous!
    Thank you very much by your comment. I understand that it is important to attract readers, but the truth is very important always... For this entry, the best name is drago millenary legend. This is the legend of the tree because people says that Drago tree has more than 1000 years. This tree is real and you can see in the photograph of the entry. And if you want to know more information about Drago Milenario, you can see the next post with my own photographs: http://blogdenortiz.blogspot.com/2011/07/el-drago-milenario-de-tenerife.html

When you receive the mail for this comment, you will see an option to cancel the suscription. In fact, this option is always available in the mails where you see these comments. See a look and I hope you can do it well. I as blogger I can't remove you of the service because I don't have this possibility
