Mythic Creatures That Never Existed But People Believed In Anyway

The fish man of Lirganes

The fish man of Lirganes existence has been suggested but has not been proven and belongs to the mythology of Cantabria, an autonomous community located in northern Spain. The fish man of Lirganes, according to urban legend, is an amphibious being that looks like a depressed man who had been lost at sea. Many people believed that the fish man was one of the four sons of Francisco de la Vega and Mar?a del Casar, a couple who lived in the area, who was thought to have drowned when he went swimming with his friends in Bilbao s estuary and was never seen again. What s even more strange about this story is the fact that the bright Spanish Enlightenment scholar Benito Jer?nimo Feijoo, who was known for encouraging scientific and empirical thought in an effort to debunk myths and superstitions, examined the tale closely, and was charmed by this story to the point that he claimed, against his own better judgment, that the story of the fish man of Lirganes was somehow true.
