An Ogre from the traditions of Spain. El Zangarron had a huge head with a hooked nose, deep dark eyes covered with thick black eyebrows and a black beard. He wears a pointed hat and the clothes of a peasant and is usually depicted with his mouth open ready to devour people. At one time in the town of Sanjoles del Vino in Zamora, the people prayed to St. Esteban. When their wish was not granted, they pelted a statue of the Saint in anger. At that moment they were ambushed by El Zangarron who scared the towns people away.
