Port of Santa Mariña

O Camiño dos Faros gets to Santa Mariña, which is a small fishing port where we stop to gather whereas we think about how hard it is to work in the sea, especially in this one.

We go closer to the dock that is tucked between the green forests and the mountains that protect it from the Southern wind. We can see the vessels that rest after a working day.


In spite of the rough sea, the household economy has to be based on something and in this area, that has been isolated from the rest of the world for ages, fishing has been the only feasible option. As a complement, some of them used to walk along the coast to pick up the things that the own sea had brought back.

We left the port passing by the kind of sheds walking along the coast and going through the “coído” of boulders leading to the dune of MountBranco.
