The Coast of Death houses the marine cemetery with the most shipwrecks catalogued in Spain.
Ships of all types lie at the bottom of these coasts: brigantines, galleons, sailboats, fishing boats, merchants, submarines, frigates, and … even crude oil tankers.
Practically all the cultures or civilizations that crossed the seas left remains in the Coast of Death, enriched in this way with an underwater archeology of incalculable value.
The writer Hixinio Puentes, who works in the historical field, assures that “only the remains that rest on the continental shelf are known”. Beyond the border that separates this platform from the great Atlantic depths, known as Alén do Cantil by the sailors, approximately 60 miles from the coast, the heritage that may exist is unknown.
WHAT TO DO:
Just 35 minutes from LiresCa you can enjoy a beautiful and educational Historic Maritime Route in Camelle, held in the third quarter of the year.
