Another equally attractive legend from the area tells how in front of Cape San Cibrao, in the municipality of Cervo, there are some small islands known as “Os Farallóns”. There was a mermaid who lived there, called “A Maruxaina”, and when the weather is bad she comes out to call sailors. Some think that she does this to help them when in danger, but there are others who say that her intention is to deceive them and sink their boats. In reference to this legend, an old tradition was recovered some years ago. Residents make a mermaid with long golden hair out of a rock, and at nightfall on the second Saturday of August they take her from Os Farallóns to the beach of San Cibrao. She is subjected to a popular trial and is absolved. She is then taken back to the islands and remains hidden there for the rest of the year.
