The geo-destination, Costa da Morte, contains the municipalities: Cabana de Bergantiños, Camariñas, Carballo, Carnota, Cee, Coristanco, Corcubión, Dumbría, Fisterra, A Laracha, Laxe, Malpica de Bergantiños, Mazaricos, Muxía, Ponteceso, Vimianzo and Zas.

Here was the end of the world, the 'Finis Terrae' of the Romans. Specifically, Cabo Fisterra, a fascinating place since ancient times, and where many pilgrims end their journey after passing through Santiago de Compostela.

The legendary Costa da Morte gets its name from the many shipwrecks that have occurred here. A rugged coastline with endless beaches such as Carnota, O Rostro or Baldaio and cliffs, strong currents and sudden storms as well, which make it so feared by sailors. Here, the sea is boss. The English Cementery – near Cabo Vilán – where the sailors of the 1890 shipwreck of the Serpent,  were buried. And perhaps to ask for Heaven for mercy, this is also a coastline dotted with magical shrines, like that of the Virxe da Barca.

But, sometimes, the sea enters the land and becomes a protective estuary: Corcubión, Lires, Camariñas, Corme e Laxe. Towns with an authentic taste of the sea and many stories to tell. Like the giant granaries of Carnota and Lira. Or the delicate "encaixes de Camariñas".
