Full description
Take a day to get to know the Costa da Morte and the most rugged Atlantic coast facade in Galicia. Discover places of unique and stately beauty, such as Ponte Maceira and the Cascada del Ézaro, the only waterfall in Europe where fresh water pours directly into ocean.

See Cape Finisterre Lighthouse, the westernmost area of Europe. Since ancient times, this place was considered by the Romans to be the end of the earth. Here you can enjoy stunning views of the cliffs, brave the waters of the Atlantic, and also take some free time for lunch in the town of Finisterre.

Another essential point is Muxía, a typical fishing village and well known for its Virxe da Barca sanctuary, a baroque building built in the 11th-century chapel with a balcony facing towards the sea.

And finally, discover the Vimianzo Castle, a fortress built in the 12th century, it is home to a large sample of local crafts including bobbin lace, silver, basketry, and linen. Do not miss the opportunity to discover one of the most unique areas of Galicia.
