Mermaid of Meaipe

This story has to do with the Treasury of the Dutch. According to legend, a Dutch ship e  sank off the coast of Espírito Santo and some of the crew were saved by being trapped by the wreckage and were taken by the waves to Meaípe , where  lived the Goitacás Indians. 


Surprised with the physique of the Dutch, the Indians thought they had been delivered by the Ocean Gods. They offered him fruits and honey, gave him hammocks to rest in the shade of the dye trees.


The castaways gradually understood the indigenous customs and ended up marrying the daughters of the chiefs, which explains some European traits in the local population.


Legend has it that, however, one of them, before the wedding, went out admiring the beauty of the landscape and got lost.
