Costa da Morte
Santuario de la Virgen de la Barca
The rugged cliffs that make up Costa da Morte (the Coast of Death) are found in the northeast of Galicia, stretching from Monte Louro Point in the south (in the township of Muros), to the village of Caión in the north.
Following the road, which goes around some truly spectacular scenery, we come to Monte Louro, which has a beautiful beach at its foot. The next town is Carnota, renowned for having a gorgeous beach, as well as a very rich ecosystem. Cee is the most populated village in the area. In its historic quarter, we will find ancient stone houses lining narrow, winding streets. If we keep following the coast, we come to Corcubión, famous for its port, the westernmost one in the entire Iberian Peninsula. Its historic quarter was declared a Historic-Artistic Site, and it preserves several noble mansions, a sign of the city's former splendour.
The town of Fisterra was established on the site of an ancient fishing village, and still preserves its traditional layout. Towns like Muxía, with its famous chapel of Nosa Señora da Barca; Camariñas, where they still hand-make their wonderful bobbin laces; Laxe, with an important fishing port that takes up a wide inlet, and Malpica, located in the region of Bergantiños, mark the journey to Caión, the fishing village where our journey through Costa da Morte ends.
