LiresCa, Your “Camino” on the Coast of Death

LiresCa, Your “Camino” on the Coast of Death

Hello!

We are Mariví and Delfin.

We were born and raised in the village of Lires, Cee. Like so many others from our generation, when we finished studying, we worked for several years in the big city. But when we had our first child we knew for sure that we wanted to raise him in the village where we were born, in Lires. So..., we packed up and came to live in this precious land.

With the arrival of our second child, we began to question the course of our life and the legacy that we would like to leave behind us. It turns out that here, in Lires, we have a 19th-century house in ruins.

It is the house in which “Granny Lina” lived.

We both like work related to tourism and we have experience in this field, so we thought we could do a good job and create a project that excites us. After giving it some serious thought, we finally found the key to what we wanted to do.

Our idea has a name: it's called LiresCa, Lires on the “Camino”.

We´ve just started rebuilding the house. And when we have everything ready, we hope you'll be surprised by what we have to offer.

LiresCa, Lires on the “Camino”, is born today with this blog, where we will talk about life, stories, legends, and curiosities of our land.

Welcome to LIRESCA, Your “Camino” on the Coast of Death.

On the beach of Lires, in the coldest months of winter, you can fish for a curious small bodied fish (maximum 35 cm), elongated, pointed head and blue-green in colour. It answers to the name of "lubión",  although in other locations it is known as "lanzón, pipión or pixilin". Although its fishing is not usually done for sport, but rather for bait, in Lires it is tradition to fry them in oil and then savour them at the table. The smallest specimens are eaten whole with spine and head. T…

Mount Pindo A left-wing youth from Quilmas (Carnota) called O Catelo, who had become the leader of the "foucellas" (1) from Mount Pindo, led a flight plan for himself and twelve other men.
