MUXIA GPS 43.106053 -9.216130
We left this morning after a colourful sunset the previous night and said goodbye to our lovely hideaway at Cabo Finisterre with The Driver saying “ We’ll have a slow day and we will hit the coast road towards Muxia on the pilgrim route
A sleep spot was found on the quayside and an aire for loo dumping on the road out . The Cook read ..sitting in the town square overlook the sea … Not much going on really .. Had a beer in a cafe Bought some bread to keep the towns economy ticking over ..Had a look at the church but it was shut ..That’s about it for Muxio A very good sleepy spot ..
This part of the Galician coast is The Costa da Morte .Rocky headlands ..very twisty roads though the forests ..even smaller fishing hamlets and remote golden beaches…. This eerily beautiful Coast of Death is a coast of legends The Virgin Mary landed here before going to see St James in Santiago da Compostela..
You may ask Why have you missed Santiago ? We have been before 25 years ago .. On Christmas Day .. and .. we went to the mass in the cathedral with the incense bong being swung through the Nave by brown garbed monks ..We saw the bones of St James as well then went for brandy and hot chocolate in the Parador next door and slept in our old stolen campervan on a street in the old town so why would we want to return as it could never be as good as that ..
Legends of Wreckers and smugglers.. Despite its numerous Lighthouses this treacherous coast has claimed a lot of lives including scores of English is the 1800’s who are buried here ..
We have survived and are now at a surfing beach Pria De Razo rolling seas a couple of surfers out .. and we hope for another sunset ..
