Between the Rías de Vigo and Pontevedra, on the westernmost point of the peninsula of Morrazo, lies the Costa da Vela. This is an untouched world where the sea and the pines are the owners of the landscape. The views here are spectacularly beautiful.
Like the sunset seen from the Faro de Cabo Home, one of the highest in Galicia. Or the cliffs of Donón, over 150 metres high and against which the sea pounds furiously. Or Melide beach – with the Cies Islands in front, almost at arm's length – and from which it is not uncommon to see dolphins playing in the water. Or, now in the estuary of Vigo, the idyllic beaches of Nerga and Barra– the latter nudist – with clear water and surrounded by pine trees that reach almost to the sand.
Dominating the sky and earth, the legendary Monte do Facho, ancient Celtic fortified town and shrine. Though only 160 metres above sea level, its location is perfect for not missing a thing, from Cabo Silleiro to Cabo Fisterra.
