It is a dramatized track race that will take the little ones through the main tourist attractions of the fishing village. A tour that, with the aim of solving a riddle, will allow you to discover the ins and outs of discovery, to figures as prominent as Diego Carmona, Vasco Gallego, Isabel la Católica or Pinzón; and places like the Church of Santa María, the Monolito de la Arribada, the nuns’ fountain or the Pinta caravel, among others.

It will start from the music box in Parque de la Palma, where an actress, symbolizing Baiona, will give the little ones the first clues to start playing.

Divided into teams, the children will have to solve different riddles that will take them through some of the most outstanding points of the fishing village, where there will be actors representing some of the most important characters in the history of Baiona. They will be the ones who, explaining different historical episodes, will give the participants the following clues to continue with the tour. The winning team will win an optimist candle courtesy of the company Filtros Navales Jesús Betanzos.

“It is the perfect combination of sport, tourism and fun” says the sports director of the Baiona city council, Javier F. López, who thanks the members of the Casa de la Navegación Museum and the Baiona Theater Classroom for having made possible. “For just over an hour, children will be able to discover the history and wonders of Baiona while having fun following clues and solving riddles” – he continues – “And this will only be the appetizer of what we will prepare at Easter for the Spanish Optimist Championship”.
