As well as the lighthouse, there is a lookout point at the old navy semaphore building which has been converted into a nature hotel. From here, we can see the remains of the maritime control base on the cliffs, beside which hang dizzyingly a succession of mills which form a scene which brings to mind images from more northern parts. However, the most ancient human construction is the pre-Roman wharf of Bares (Mañón). The protected space also includes the coast of Loiba (Ortigueira) whose gigantic cliffs protect beaches which, because of their difficult access, are some of the most solitary beaches of Galicia. The strength of the sea explains the curious mooring system of the launches which are atiached to the walls of the jetty by pulley wheels to stop them being swept away by the high tide.
