The history of Andora has romantic roots. In the village lived a beautiful girl named Andalora, in love with the young Stefanello. Their love, however, was opposed by the Saracen Al Kadir, who kidnapped the girl, tying her to the mast of her ship. Stefanello secretly freed him, but due to an error he was discovered and killed by the soldier on guard. Andalora hugged and he, and before the beloved breathed his last, they threw themselves into the sea together. Al Kadir, faced with the tragic scene, was moved, then converting to Christianity and calling the places he conquered with the name of the two lovers.
