A short trip through “Costa da morte” (21.07.2013)

Last Sunday in the afternoon (21.07.2013) I made together with Belén a short tour along the sea coast where I live in Spain. Its name is “Costa da morte” wich translated literally means “death coast”. The coast owes its name to the many shipwrecks happened in the past due to the dangerous and complicated sea conditions which are common here. Our first stop wast the little town of Muxia, especially known to the tourists and pilgrims for its old chapel.

The chapel is on the backside of the hill of Muxia.

Our next stop was the cascade of “Ézaro”. The special about this cascade is that it is the only one in Europe, where the river water falls directly into the ocean.

Our final stop was the charming fishing village of Corcubión. Here with a nice version of the port at low tide.
