Finisterre Lighthouse

One of the countless legends there are in the Coast of Death says that, being “the End of the World”, Finisterre was where the border between life and death was located. Until the Middle Ages it was believed that planet Earth was flat, and Finisterre, on the Coast of Death, was considered to be the westernmost point of the European continent and, therefore, the point of Europe closer to the "end of the world."

Another legend in which the name Coast of Death is inspired has it that, since the Camino de Santiago* ended in Finisterre, this was the way followed by the ancient Celtic pilgrims come from all over Europe to the place where the Sun died every day to be reborn to a new life of light.
*The Way of St. James

WHAT TO DO:

DID YOU KNOW? The Mar de Fàbula Environmental Association was the first to exhibit in Espazo LiresCa

The exhibition of the Mar de Fàbula Environmental Association was with us in Espacio Liresca for almost 2 months. It was the first exhibition with which we inaugurated LiresCa. And we are very grateful to Mar de Fàbula and Xosé Manuel Barros. The chaotic figures, the fish boxes, the lost heads, the boats, ... in short, the sculptures made of the plastic garbage collected from our beaches accompanied us during our first steps of this new voyage. There were many people who passed through LiresCa during these mont…
