Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In Catalan mythology, Aloja (in Catalan, Aloges, Dones d'aigua or Goges) are feminine beings that live in places with fresh water. These "water-women" can turn into water blackbirds. According to legend, women are not immortal, but can live for thousands of years and retain their youth.It is said that the lakes where the dones d'aigua bathe can boil in anger if any stranger enters them. In Majorca, the most famous water-woman is Maria Enganxa. According to tradition, she lives inside all the wells and cisterns and takes all the children that pass near them with her hook.
