    A legend is a fictional story in which the real and the marvelous are mixed and whose intention is often to moralize.

    A myth, on the other hand, is a story that proposes an explanation tinged with wonder to certain fundamental aspects of the world and society.

    Many people differentiate legends from myths by the fact that legends are based on real facts that have been modified, whereas myth has been completely invented.
