Church of Lires Coast of Death

The current Church of Santo Estevo* de Lires was built in the eighteenth century to replace the old one, which was closer to the estuary and frequently ran the risk of flooding during the spring tides.
The visitor of the archbishopric of Santiago, Don Jerónimo del Hoyo, wrote about the old church of Lires, which still remains in popular memory, and said: "San Esteban* de Lires, annexe of Santa María de la Junquera of Cee. This congregation has forty parishioners. There is no Blessed Sacrament because the sea can even reach the belfry that is on the other side of the atrium. "
*Saint Stephen

History can help us put into perspective what is happening with the current pandemic and, although it may seem otherwise, the severity of this outbreak appears to be far from the deadliest outbreaks.
