Sad the lighthouse is closed and we visited not in a bloom season. But anyway it was worth the visit! Easy to find from Ribadeo-just across the highway following signs. There are benches you can sit and relax gazing at the ocean waves

We walked the Estrada de Faro (road of the light house) along the cliffs above the see from the town to the lighthouse. Very lovely on a beautiful day.

The walk from Ribadeo to Illa Plancha is just a few km long so it only takes about 45 minutes with a few short stops for view included. There is a fort on the way sometimes used for art exhibitions, some good view points and...More
