GEO-DESTINATION

Costa da Morte

Here was the end of the world, the 'Finis Terrae' of the Romans. Specifically, Cabo Fisterra, a fascinating place...

Estuary

ESTUARIES AND BEACHES

Estuary "Ría de Corcubión"

This is a land of giants. A wide inlet which opens from Fisterra...

Cabo Fisterra

The Romans thought that this was the earth's westernmost point and therefore that the world ended here. It was the finisterrae, or land's end. Why would someone want to go to the end of the world?

Perhaps it is because the Cabo Fisterra cape hides the true secret of the Costa da Morte: wild rough landscapes and amazing beaches, some (protected by the cape) with calm waters and others with strong waves like that of Mar de Fóra, one of Galicia's wildest beaches. And the greatest attraction of all times: the sunset over the enormity of the ocean, the sea of the end of the world.

Either out of curiosity or to live an adventure, the Cabo Fisterra cape has been a magnet since ancient times, attracting travellers from distant countries and, with less luck, the many ships that shipwrecked in its waters.

Today, with its powerful lighthouse, Cabo Fisterra still has a special attraction for Way of St. James pilgrims, whose journey does not end until they get here. There must be a reason.
