This struggle of titans between the orca and the tuna is produced every year in these waters, and it constitutes a natural phenomenum unique on earth., that was also known by the Greeks, Romans and Phoenicians, and also Neanderthals, being the base of the well known myth of Atlantis, which was here as the well known Hercules Columns, the Strait of Gibraltar.

Director`s letter:

fernando"I have never ever heard anything so exiting as this idea that NATURE TARIFA proposes. Going back with a reduced group of people to the " Natural scenarios" where the making of the film Ultimatuna took place, that is now being viewed on screens all over the world, it`s just like living it all over once again. All the experience that we have gained throughout the three years that filming lasted, was condensed in four intensive days, thanks to the presence of the tunas and the orca whales in these magic waters which is an annual phenomenon, but now, yes, it`s predictable. For me it`s an incredible opportunity to revive these emotions once again in a place that has no comparison in the world, because only in the Strait of Gibraltar you can find a combination of wild animals, ancestral cultures and absolute luxury, security, accessibility under an extraordinary climate. Welcome to "La Rosa de los Vientos", where the seas of two continents embrace each other, the path of the titans, the Strait of Gibraltar. "
