Atardecer sobre el Cabo Fisterra - Finisterre - Cape Finisterre view at sunset

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The name of Cape Finisterre derives from the Latin name Finisterrae, which literally means "Land's End". Monte Facho is the name of the mountain on Cape Finisterre, which has a peak that is 238 meters above sea level. A prominent lighthouse is at the top of Monte Facho. The seaside town of Fisterra is nearby.

Cape Finisterre has some spectacular beaches, including O Rostro, Arnela, Mar de Fora, Langosteira, Riveira, and Corbeiro. Many of the beaches are framed by steep cliffs leading down to the Mare Tenebrosum (or dark sea, the name of the Atlantic in the Middle Ages). (Fuente: Wikipedia)
