Rumbo al Norte – Day 3: the end of the Earth

We got there just in time.

Walked over to the lighthouse.

Sat on the cool, flat boulders, covered with lichens – the first organism that colonises new territories.

Watched the sun, setting.

Finisterra: from the latin finis and terrae, which literally mean the end of the Earth. Because that was where the Earth finished, at least for the romans. After that, there was the Mare Tenebrosum, the dark sea.

We came here by chance – only as we were driving there I realised that “sunset in Finisterra” was a thing. But, not unlike sunset in Oia, it is definitely something you must do if you’re here in Galicia.
