A plus

Costa da Morte or “Coast of Death” is a name that defines a wide region of Galicia between the Muros and Noia Rias and A Coruña Ria. This curious toponym, according to some academics, may have been given by the Greeks to define the region where the Sun disappeared into the sea every day and sank into the land of the dead until the following morning. Another more recent and widespread suggestion refers to the large number of shipwrecks that have taken place on this dangerous stretch of coastline (more than 140 major shipwrecks in a hundred years).
