Due to the situation of the Cies Islands, in the middle of the XIXth century, the Peninsular and Oriental Company of English steamship from Vigo´s port asked the Minister of State for a lighthouse placement which helped the ships to get into the port and directed the ones which came from America to the North of Europe.
