History of Ons Island

The first evidence of settlers in Ons coincides with the Castro culture settlements during the Bronze Age. The most popular of these, which is yet to be excavated, is located over the Canexol neighbourhood and it is known as “Castelo dos Mouros”. Given that Romans used to settle in the already existent Celtic settlements, the lack of research regarding the Castro located in Canexol means that there are no records of Roman occupation on the Island either. Modern Age The Modern Age was a time of instability in Ons due to the many pillaging and pirate attacks. In the late 16th century, the siege of English corsairs began, Francis Drake being the most famous and feared, even among his own people, and also of Turkish and Berber pirates. The constant pillaging and burning of spaces in this place ended up with settlers fleeing to the coast at the beginning of the 18th century.
