The Costa da Morte stretches over tens of kilometres along the north-western coast of Galicia within the province of A Coruña. On this coast, we find deserted beaches, coves and cliffs. Its capes, such as those of Fisterra, Touriñán and Vilán, jut out into a wild ocean of constantly choppy waters.
All of this creates an unmistakable landscape, which is the area's identifying mark.
Its villages invite quiet walks with time to sit and watch the men and women who live off the sea as they carry out their daily tasks. It is a land of mystery, of legends and myths. Its beautiful scenery and cultural interest make it a unique area that holds a special charm for visitors.
A large portion of the North Atlantic maritime traffic passes in front of these coasts. Taking into account the jagged coastline and the numerous storms that the area suffers during the winter months, it is not surprising that the Costa da Morte was the scene of a great many shipwrecks and all along the coast crosses have been placed in memory of the victims. The "Cemiterio de los Ingleses" (English Cemetery) is thus named in memory of the many who drowned when the English ship, the Serpent, went down in 1880.
On the "Costa da Morte" the traditions of its old trades and crafts are still maintained today. Bobbin lace, particularly that from Camariñas, as well as from other towns, received international recognition. Moreover, Buño has been famous for centuries for its important pottery industry.
