Picture[edit]

http://www.bienmesabe.org/noticia/2010/Noviembre/la-foto-de-san-borondon That article, in Spanish, cites official sources (newspaper ABC editions). The other photos are the witnesses back when they were kids and later.


Picture[edit]

Would anybody actually have the picture taken by Rodriguez Quintero that they could post up on the internet somewhere?

Merge?[edit]

I might be wrong, but this seems to be the same island as Island of St. Brandan... if this is so, these articles should be merged.  :: Salvo (talk) 04:29, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

For image of island see: http://www.iiee.cl/frien2.htm about halfway down. Text reads: "In 1985 the prestigious Spanish periodical ABC published a photo showing an unclear, vague outline of an alleged island that could be San Borondon. It was taken by Manuel Rodriguez Quintero of Llano de Aridane together with neighbours."

Writing style giving the wrong impression[edit]

People who claimed to have seen San Borondon probably saw a mirage of La Palma. The reports of landings on the island must have been frauds. This should be pointed out more clearly. After all, there is no eighth Canary Island!

Removed ", and on 6 December 2003 at noon the phantom island of San Borondon was visible from the southern tip of Tenerife and Gran Canaria and video-recorded by tourists for several minutes (according to Indy Alonso, Zona Cero, December 2003)". No journal is cited and the authors' names appear to be spurious. Restore if proof can be found. Adambondy 00:04, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Reference[edit]

I found a reference to this Island, but could not see where to add it into the article. I list it here for others to consider:

  • Carson, Rachel L. (1961) [1951]. The Sea Around Us (Revised ed.). New York: Oxford University Press. p. 67. "Shadowy and insubstantial as are the accounts of all such legendary lands—the fabled Lemuria of the Indian Ocean, St. Brendan's Island, the lost Atlantis—they persistently recur ..."

Spanish names[edit]

Matea Dacesta doesn't makes sense in Spanish. Mateo is the Spanish for Matthew. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.8.98.118 (talk) 11:46, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
