“This place has a folk tale of its own! This is the legend: a man, Cantuna, made a pact with the Devil to finish the building atriums. The deal included the Devil taking his soul upon the completion of the building. When the bells sounded signaling it was time for the devil to get his payment.

Enjoy and find the missing brick! ”
