Essentially, the work is being done twice.
The .writerow method expects a list which it will
convert into a quoted, comma-separated string. You're
giving it a list whose one element is a quoted, comma-separated

Just pass it a list instead:

writer.writerow (['Ruta', 'Archivo', '.prj'])
writer.writerow ([filepath, filename, 1])

(BTW, my naive knowledge of Spanish suggests that you're confusing
the two identical-sounding English words: "root" -> "raiz" and
"route" -> "ruta").
