  • He embarks on the pier of Cesantes (Redondela), making a small journey to the bridge of Rande by the estuary knowing his history to disembark on the island of San Simón where his visit takes place in a unique place with events of pirates, Jules Verne , lazareto, orphanage, quarantined ships, post-war prison and escape tunnels; a whole part of the history of Spain. Finally, you embark for the return to the starting point.

  • The island is beautiful, but its story really very sad. St. Simon was a concentration camp, people spent hardships there and there were many suicides... There is also an area where a mass grave is known. Both the town hall, the Xunta, and the Government refuse to show a minimum of attention to the events that occur there. Families from all over Spain travel there to find out about their lost beings. And they are amazed that there are playful excursions and concerts... There are thousands of places to do these activities... But in concentration camp, where there was so much death and pain...
