Info about Ons islands:
Ons Islands, together with Cies Islands, are one of the main tourist attractions in the south of Galicia.
They were declared a Natural Park in 1980 and part of the Atlantic Islands National Park in 2002. The archipelago, situated at the mouth of Pontevedra estuary, is formed by two main islands: Ons and Onza, along with small islets such as A Freitosa, O Centolo and O Cairo. Its lighthouse is one of the biggest in Spain.
In addition to its sandy unspoiled beaches and its seabed and birds with a big biodiversity, the other main attraction of the Ons (which have their own microclimate) is its cliffs with spectacular sea and mountain views. The first human settlement where already in the Paleolithic, whose proof are the ruins of 2 "castros" (fortified settlements) in the islands. The Romans also mentioned the Ons Islands and settled here, as shown by references by Plinio.
In the islands there were always people living there, being its approximate population of 530 people in the middle of the 20th century. But this population was descending a lot over the years due to the isolation of the place and the problems of communication with the continent, the lack of medical services, the problems to get licenses for the construction of new houses, and the lack of energy. Nowadays, there is a population of about 78 people in several lovely villages, although some of this people live in the islands only in summer time.
