After all that walking & cycling we decided to go on a bus tour to visit the Atlantic coast and Finisterre, named as such by the Romans because they thought they had reached the end of the world when they saw the Atlantic Ocean. Those silly flat-worlders!
It was a long and full day as we stopped at numerous places, all quite spectacular in their own way. The first was a 13th century medieval bridge – Ponte Meceira – with associated water mills for processing the local grain. Not functioning anymore but still intact with their huge millstones.
We then headed back inland to see Rio Xallas, a river that flows out of the mountains as a waterfall. It had been totally redirected into a hydroelectric generator but some of the water flow has now been returned to its original path. They know the value of the tourist Euro.
