Cíes Islands, on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 7, mothers travel for FREE

Mother’s Day: free Cíes Islands for mothers, that’s the bet of #PiratasdeNabia. We are launching a promotion to the Cíes Islands, an unforgettable original gift for the whole family. Free of charge, no raffles.
Mother’s Day dates back to Ancient Greece, where festivities were held in honor of Rhea, mother of the gods Zeus, Hades and Poseidon (who is also the god of the seas in Greek mythology).
Mother’s Day is celebrated on different dates around the world. In Spain it is well known that we celebrate the first Sunday of the month of May. However, this is not the case in all countries, not even in our immediate surroundings, for example, in France or Tunisia it is celebrated on the last Sunday of May.
In other Arab countries such as Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco or Syria, Mother’s Day coincides with Spring Day, March 21, isn’t it poetic?
Be that as it may, the May 7 it is a fantastic day for Naviera Nabia to propose to you FREE trips to Cíes Islands for mothers to travel to the islands of the gods as a family (of any type and format, but always 2 adults, one of them the mother, and at least one child).
