The Sovereign Trinity of San Pedro de Nada consists of the Districts of
San Pedro Grande (S.P.G.)
San Pedro Grande is the main island of our archipelago. About 12 kilometres of paved roads, numerous buildings, various landscapes and landmarks are waiting to be discovered by you.
Puerto de Pedro, the capital settlement of the Trinity, provides four stores, several houses, a church and of course The Council Hall. But you may possibly rather want to spend your time in the cozy pubs of Puerto de Pedro, such as the famous "Golden Lion and the Lamb".
San Pedrocito is a scenic tiny village in the rural plantations area, where the vegetables grow. In the nearby forrest at the slopes of the Elephant's Back roughly two hundred parrots are singing "God save the Pin'ead" every morning, an event that brings tears to the eyes of every true Sanpedronesian.
Elephant's Back, a woody hill that reaches an altitude of approx. 112 metres. From the tower you can see almost every part of the Trinity, except "mysterious" Sorryville that hides behind Solitude's Hideout Hill. But look! Jim Morgan's on the pier of Solitude, trying to bait crabs or something.
Oriente (The East) provides a trinity of famous landmarks. The Palm Tree peninsula, where the first Sanpedronesian stranded with nothing but his life and an unsinkable mobile phone. The Lighthouse which might have been a cultic building of the primal population that mysteriously vanished; possibly this will be the residence of the Pin'ead once upon the time. The Aligator Farm, where you may take a deep look into the mouth of a yawning beast.
Doña Mañana (D.M.)
Doña Mañana Island, home of leisure. Snow white beaches all around, palm trees sway in the breeze. Those who like long walks will feel at home on this isle, that with its length of 12 kilometres from the Eastern Cape to the Western Cape will give you an idea of distance. Bicyclists from all around the Trinity love the 6 kilometres of paved road from the pier of Seis Casas to the Beach Bar, which once was well known for excellent seafood and cold refreshing drinks. When the wind blows from the north, you may smell the strange odour of exotic wildlife coming from the Aligator Farm on the main island. And on silken, silent evenings you may want to hang out at the pier, from where you can see the lights of San Pedrocito.
Actually the five houses and the hotel of Seis Casas are abandoned. The Ministry of Immigration likes to encourage the recolonization of Doña Mañana, even though settlers should be warned. Due to its shape and its location all houses might have to be evacuated during tempests and floods, because the island is utterly flat. Under such circumstances most of the Mañaneños will have to chose whether they wanted to spend some days on the main island or in the mountains - that is, on an 11 metres high elevation near Seis Casas which is called Alto Penalti.
Solitude Boredom (S.&B.)
Solitude Island, the little pearl of San Pedro de Nada, has once been hosting a colony of artists and anarchists. A 3 km long palm-fringed road leads from the pier to Trombone Palace, once upon the time a dancing hall. Three abandoned houses at the Elephant's Trunk, a longue of land that withstands the ocean since eternities, are waiting for tourists or settlers. The Ministry of Immigration encourages the recolonization of this beautiful island, where the rarely seen red stone gulls are breeding on the 82 m high Hideout Hill.
Boredom Rock - anxious people better don't try to stay for more than 24 hours on this tiny island with its maximal coast-to-coast diameter of approx. 900 metres. Tourists may like to visit the ruins of the old prison of San Pedro de Nada, and listen to the call of the archaic blue stone gull, that is breeding on the 67 m high Gore Hill, the highest elevation of the island, and by the way, an active volcano - which is why.
The people of Solitude and Boredom are famous for their hospitality. They call this habit southron; even the most skilled linguists still don't know where this word came from.
