Legends: It is said that the municipality of El Cuervo was once called Fuentes Claras and belonged to a Marquise. One day when the Marquise was with her daughter near the spring, her daughter fell into the water and drowned; the Marquise exclaimed in grief: “Fuentes Claras, Fuentes Claras, black crow for me, because I lost the daughter I had in the river! This is the origin of the name of the municipality.
