On August 19, 2011, the alignment and proximity of the Moon and Earth's gravitational attraction was greater than usual, which caused unusual tidal coefficients.

San Fernando (Spain), low-tide level zero is reached, i.e., the maximum possible water withdrawals. The expected tidal coefficient was 117. All this meant that arise along the coast landscapes that are usually under water.

These bunkers of the Spanish Civil War, whose foundations are surrounded by water daily, were far from shore, like stranded vessels.

El 19 de agosto de 2011, la alineación y proximidad de la Luna y de la Tierra provocaban una atracción gravitatoria mayor de lo habitual, que provocaba mareas de coeficientes poco comunes. En San Fernando (España), en bajamar se alcanzó la cota cero, es decir, el máximo de retirada de las aguas posible. El coeficiente de marea previsto era de 117. Todo esto hizo que surgieran a lo largo de la costa paisajes que habitualmente están bajo las aguas. Estos búnkers de la Guerra civil Española, cuyos cimientos son diariamente rodeados por las aguas, quedaron lejos de la orilla, como barcos varados
