Santo André de Teixido

Santo André de Teixido

The 'milladoiros' – or mounds of stones that are grouped on either side of the road leading to the church of Santo André de Teixido...



Nature reserves


The northern part of the province of A Coruña is a unique area where visitors can enjoy spectacular beaches, picturesque villages that retain the essence of pure Galicia,  prime cuisine and unique nature reserves. The northernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula (Estaca de Bares), the A Frouxeira lagoon  – visited every year by thousands of migratory birds – the cliffs of the Serra da Capela, which soar up to 600 metres above the sea, and the shrine of St. André of Teixido  (where "anyone who did not go there alive, will have to go there dead") are huge secrets waiting to be discovered by the traveller.

Nature was very generous with this land, and she placed it near the heart of a green lung – the Fragas do Eume, – a natural park that exudes coolness and is the great natural treasure of Ferrolterra. Also found in this geodestination are the protected areas of Xubia-Castro, Ortigueira-Mera and Costa Ártabra,  this latter covering 100 km. of coastline between the estuaries of Ares and Ortigueira.
