More on Galicia
One shows Finisterre as you look back at the harbour and old town. As I have said before, this is not quite the quaint tourist town that some would have you believe, but it is the best place in Galicia in which to eat fresh fish.
If you are lucky, it is even possible to see fish taken off the boats – sold in the market – and carried over to the harbour side eatery where you are sat, and cooked on a barbeque in front of you.
For more on this location, visit this Finisterre page in Galicia Guide.
The second photo is a typical little village at the very end of a ria – where the river feeds into the sea at what we would probably describe as an estuary.
In truth I cannot remember where I took this shot, but I think it may have been close to the town of Outes.
If you click on either photo they will be enlarged (slightly).
