    Los Acantilados Marinos mas altos de la UE are high cliffs located in Rías Altas Region, between Cariño and Cedeira towns located in Galicia. In this zone, there are some lookouts, from where you can see wonderful views of coast and cliffs. In fact, we follow the road and we stopped in some view points. Really amazing! Some viewpoints, where we stopped were Miranda, Limo, Vixia Herbeira, Teixideilo-Cruceiro, dos Carrís and Chao do Monte. Very nice, especially two first lookouts. Very recommendable route by car!

    This is a very remote location. Until the 70's there was no access by road. However, it was a place very popular among Galicians. Along the road you will find wild horses roaming around. There will be plenty of ex-votes in the church. Near the church there is a fountain. People used to drink from it but now has a sign stating the water is not potable because it runs exposed to the environment. The few villagers in this location live from agriculture and from selling souvenirs to the tourists. A typical one is composed of several figures made out of bread and painted, representing some religious beliefs. In this place there are many legends that anthropologists would love. It is said that whoever does not visit this place during his lifetime would have to do it after death. Keeping in mind that Celts believed in the transmigration of souls this trip after death could be done as an animal. For that reason, locals do not kill small lizards or step on beetles or other insects that they find on the road. Pilgrims leave a rock in particular places as a witness of their trip during their life time. It is customary to get a flower called Sea Pink. It is supposed to enhance love in a couple.
    On 6/1/1943 a Dutch plane where Leslie Howard was returning to England was shot down by German planes. The plane fell into the sea. No survivors. A passenger looked like Churchill and that was the reason for the attack.

    We walked out of the town along the harbour, found old fortifications, which were closed, and then walked up the hill behind to come out onto a headland with the most glorious views.
    We also found a car park so if you go around the back roads towards the fort you can park up and it is just a short walk. There are a few benches on the headland and we sat and had our lunch there.
    Glorious.

    Castelo da Concepción are the remains of a castle located in the upper part of the harbour of Cedeira, a little town in Gailica Region, in the North-West of Spain. It was built in the 18th Century in a strategic position, becuase from here you can control all harbour and the entrance of the sea. From here, there are nice views of the harbour. Pitifully, the castle is a bit deteriored, really it need a rehabilitation plan.

    Igrexa de Santa Maria do Mar is a church located in Cedeira, a town in A Coruña Province, in Galicia Region. It was built in 15th Century in a Gohic style and it has one bell tower with a dom in the upper side. It has a white facade and it is nice. We could only see it from utside, because it was closed, when we arrived to the town.
