Description: Náufragos.

"Náufragos" Shipwrecks are fragments of wood found on the coast and were selected for their shape and volume. Especially these two pieces, Ice Atolls and Whale Tail are a type of wood known as cooked wood. This type of wood remains for many years buried by sediment, the pressure and high temperature makes the wood harden like a stone. They probably came to the surface after the dredging of the port of Ribadesella and were dragged by a strong flood to the shore of the beach.
