Here I present as a token of my admiration for the brave fishermen who face the dangers of the beautiful blue sea, hope you like it.

Cape Finisterre (Cape Finisterre, in Galician) is a cape located on the Atlantic coast of Spain, in the Galician town of Finisterre. It was declared in 2007 as European Heritage.
The Romans thought that this was the westernmost point of the known world. However, the Cape Touriñán is further west.
The lighthouse was built in 1853. The lighthouse tower, stone, is the octagonal base, and ends on a mantelpiece on which rests the balcony. Above is the dome with a polygonal lantern. The tower is 17 meters and its light, situated at 143 meters above sea level, reaching more than 30 nautical miles.
He was the quintessential scene of shipwrecks, as of 1870 when a ship carrying 482 people sank, it was the saddest event of this coast.
There are also close to the headquarters of a number of stones linked to religious legends: Holy Stones, the stones are stained with wine, the Chair of Peter, the tomb of Orcabella.
The Lighthouse Faro Finisterre is the most important of the Coast of Death, for your light to guide ships sailing in these waters dangerous storms that occur and low or reefs that exist and can cause shipwreck craft. The current building dates from 1868 and is the most visited place in Galicia after the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.
