This small magical town is located on the Bay of Biscay, close to the border to Portugal. It is named, as many wizarding villages are, based on the myth that brought about its founding. Although there is no word differentiating mermaids and sirens, the founding of this seaside village was based off of mermaids. A ship sank -- no one quite knows how, but it was taking on water, and mermaids, as the legends went, saved a few of the people aboard the ship. They settled there, and pay tribute to the mermaids that saved them every year in El festival de las sirenas.
