Photographer's Note

Hello fellow today I offer this gloomy view of the Galician town of Cee, when you visit the Galician autonomous community must assume that some day it will rain, that's what happened to us this day that I show here today, I hope you like this view a little merry with beautiful colorful fishing boats.

Cee Gallego is a municipality belonging to the province of La Coruña, in the autonomous community of Galicia.The town of Cee surface is quite irregular. We might even say that its boundaries are somewhat arbitrary and do not respond to a defined geographical unit. The only thing I could generalize it to say that land belongs to the coastal area fisterrana, though, despite the advanced nature of the coast, the high hills of Sete Gray, Alto das Penas and Quenlle mountains protect it from the elements from the fourth quadrant winds. Distinguiríamos first, to the north, the valley of Castro, gentle, cheerful and peaceful, except in its final stages when Lires rushes. Second, the coastal zone of the estuary, from the bottom, where the town begins to settle, to the vicinity of Ézaro (Dumbría). The coast is high and steep, with Caneliñas small cove, where there was a whaling station. Third, the small enclave of Estorde, safe and quiet beach, sheltered from the arc finisterrano.Cee's climate is temperate and humid, typical of the northwest coast of Galicia.In the name of Cee, as well as in other places on this coast, some historians have wanted to see the traces of Greek words, Ézaro, Or Pindus and Chios in this case, which would be an important colonization. But even this is unproven possible Hellenization of our coasts. Seems more plausible etymology derived from cetárea (Cetus) (in Latin is the tuna and whales), as Cedeira, is due to the factories of marine cetaceans. There is abundant documentation Cee in the sixteenth century. He had considerable importance to fisheries, especially whales. That's when he built the church or shrine, in late Gothic style. The church was rebuilt after the destruction caused by the French, but retains some primitive parts of that building.The population is mainly in fisheries, industry, agriculture and trade. The main industry is Brens Ferroatlantica factory. In addition to the permanent trade of the town, the largest in the region finisterrana, a fair market is held every Sunday for over a century.
