Pozo De Yanayacu - Other Activity Chachapoyas - Peru

West of the city is a well, Pozo de Yanayacu, originally known as the Fuente Cuyana, and sometimes also known as the fuente del amor (fountain of love). Legend has it that, while the region was suffering a severe drought, Saint Toribio de Mogrovejo managed to extract water from a dry rock, thus ending the drought. The legend also claims that any man who drinks from the well will fall forever in love with a local woman.
