Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer this composition in this interesting village of Cedeira, are details that sometimes we like some places. I hope you like it. Then some letters about the village.

Cedeira is a Spanish municipality belonging to the province of La Coruña, in the autonomous community of Galicia. It is located on the north coast of the Rías Altas, on the homonymous river where the river Condomiñas flows.

By 1423 Fadrique Enríquez de Castilla, who was Duke of Arjona and Count of Trastámara, among many other titles, ceded the town of Cedeira to one of his sisters, Constanza Enríquez, although the latter was bequeathed later and "in inheritance "To another of his sisters or step-sisters, Beatriz Enríquez de Castilla, although this point, as Eduardo Pardo de Guevara and Valdés pointed out," does not seem "to be fully confirmed in the documents of the time.

But there is no doubt that on 14 December 1423 Duke Fadrique Enríquez ceded to his sister Beatriz Enríquez, who would later marry Count Pedro Álvarez Osorio, all the alcabalas from the town of Cedeira, which belonged to the Duke, and also those of all his alfoz.

Square of the Sacred Heart. This square overlooking the sea is more commonly called by the cedeireses "red square" due to the floor of the same color. It is a very busy place, since the whole square is surrounded by cafes; In addition, there is a playground and gardens where children play.

Beach of the Magdalena. It is the most traveled and known beach of Cedeira as it is the only urban beach and its length (1400 meters in length and an average of 35 meters in width).

Beach Area Longa. This beach is located next to the port and the low tide does not affect too much.

Playa de las Sonreiras. Next to Punta Sarrridal, you can reach it by foot or by sea.

Beach of the Bubbles, named after because when walking on the wet sand bubbles are released that were trapped when the tide rises. This beach is only accessible by foot.

Beach of My Lady. This beach with crystal clear water is very little known since it is only accessible by walking, down a fairly steep terrain.
