Mount Pindo 

Mount Pindo, also known as the Celtic Olympus, served as a refuge during the Spanish Civil War and post-war to Republican fugitives and those who did not want to participate in the war.


Thus, in 1936, with the military coup against the legitimate Government of the Republic, the Civil Guard and the Falange arrived at the Concello de Carnota following their policy of  occupation of the municipalities of rural Galicia. Political leaders, trade unionists, and people who did not want to participate in the war saw in this granite mass, Mount Pindo, a place where they could take refuge safely.

The exhibition of the Mar de Fàbula Environmental Association was with us in Espacio Liresca for almost 2 months. It was the first exhibition with which we inaugurated LiresCa. And we are very grateful to Mar de Fàbula and Xosé Manuel Barros. The chaotic figures, the fish boxes, the lost heads, the boats, ... in short, the sculptures made of the plastic garbage collected from our beaches accompanied us during our first steps of this new voyage. There were many people who passed through LiresCa during these mont…
