The light from the Faro de Fisterra – which can reach 65 km long – guides ships navigating these waters that are so dangerous because of the frequent storms and reefs. The Romans themselves were astonished to see the sunset from the westernmost point of Europe sitting on the rocks of Cabo Fisterra. From here, one can discover breathtaking panoramas, such as the Corcubión estuary and the coast of Carnota, along with the wealth of the vast ocean. Every sailor in the world knows of the existence of this lighthouse as it is an important warning of the proximity of a dangerous area.
The spectacular beauty of the surroundings of the lighthouse at Cabo Vilán and the fierceness of the sea beating the shores of Cabo Touriñán are treasures that can only be seen in A Costa da Morte. The wild beaches of this area of Galicia – such as Mar de Fóra, surrounded by cliffs, and located between the peninsula of Fisterra and Cabo da Nave – can be a paradise for lovers of inhospitable places.
