Both beautiful scenery and cultural heritage can be admired at O Facho de Donón, a unique spot on the Galician coast. Located on the Costa da Vela, it has fabulous views of the Cíes and Ons islands and the Pontevedra and Vigo estuaries.
A scenic landmark with an unmistakable form, it is also the site of a rich cultural legacy, of which the most visible feature is the facho, or lighthouse, a small seventeenth-century structure that may also have been used as a surveillance point. An ancient Roman sanctuary, its strategic position means it has been occupied by many civilisations, including a castro settlement.
