I have downloaded a scientific article bout the legend of Devil Brifge at Google Scholar.
You can read the article by DR. Carme Oriol from the university Rovira i Virgili
There are twenty seven versions in Catalonia of the topic of the Devilbuilding a brige in one night in exchange for a soul of a victim.
Summary of the legend
The theme of the Devil's offer to build a bridge in one night in exchange for the soul is the basis of the story. In the Catalan linguistic and cultural area, the subject is present in at least twenty-seven versions of the oral tradition.
The narrative has a tragic tone, like many legends, and has an exemplary character. The story warns us about the dangers of having relationships with the Devil.
Legend summary of the Martorell's legend:
They say that the people of Martorell and those on the other side had wanted to build a bridge over the river to get from one village to another, but they never could; and one day the Devil appeared and said he promised to do so if they would give him the soul of the first to cross it.
They said yes; and in one night the demons built the bridge, which is still there. The next morning they caught a cat, with some rubbish tied to its tail to scare it away, and the cat crossed it; and the Devil had to settle for that soul. How they hadn't said if it had to be a beast or a person!
