Estuary "Ría de Cedeira"

The legends tell that the men and women who inhabited this coast originally descended from whales and fish. Surrounded by cliffs that are 600 meters high, the small estuary of Cedeira has a salty and eternal taste... This is the sea, rough and generous. A sea of barnacles. The most spectacular beach is the crescent shaped Vilarrube beach.
And to the north, sheltering the entrance to the estuary, that which is considered the heart of Cedeira and perhaps also of Galicia: the Sanctuary of Santo André de Teixido, a chapel devoted to the Apostle Saint Andrew located in a rugged landscape of cliffs. This is where pilgrims going to Santiago believed the Milky Way ended. It is a magical sanctuary that people should visit at least once in their lifetime...
Because "A Santo André de Teixido vai de morto quen non foi de vivo" (meaning that those who did not go during their life time will do so in their afterlife). Go there now and take home with you some "sanandreses" (figurines made from bread dough and painted in bright colours) and a sprig of "hierba de enamorar" (sea thrift) ... And tuck it into your beloved's pocket, without them noticing..
