Synopsis

San Borondón is a mythical island that appears and disappears. It has appeared on maps throughout history in the vicinity of the Canary Island. The legend of the island of San Borondón became so pervasive that, during the XVI, XVI and XVIII centuries, expeditions were organized to find and conquer it. After centuries of oblivion, it has finally been found.
