Nobody knows exactly which is the origin of this strange, ancient boat. Some historians say its origin is Phoenician. What is clear is that it was designed when rudder did not exist. The Egiptian-style eye in the bow indicates that this type of boat was brought to the South of Spain by Eastern-Mediterranean people. Nowadays, these boats are used only for competition in local feasts.
