What to see in Muxía

Muxia

92 km by road from La Coruña, this city is emblematic for its religious tradition. No less outstanding are its coastline and its mountains that offer numerous and unforgettable landscapes to see in Muxia. In this council there are many relics, such as the Sanctuary of the Virgen de la Barca that has spectacular views of the sea. It is in the Baroque style and dates from 1719.

About the area

Nearby are the famous Abalar and Os Cadrís stones. Due to a fire the main altarpiece was burned, which was a valuable Baroque work by the sculptor Miguel de Romay from Santiago.

Romanesque churches also appear, where several churches are preserved, such as San Xulián de Moraime or San Martiño de Ozón. There is also a hórreo to highlight, the Hórreo de San Martiño de Ozón, with 22 pairs of feet and one of the longest in Galicia.

Muxía has a large port, and because of this fishing is the profession that stands out the most. Almost all the families of the council live on this and generation after generation do not lose the trade by which they are made to live in this peculiar and beautiful way.

House Museum of the photographer Ramón Caamaño

Ramón Caamaño was a native Muxia photographer, who had an affinity for photography and movies since his teenage days. He was born in the early twentieth century and at just sixteen he obtained his first camera. His work in black and white amounts to more than six thousand photographs that included themes such as the Spanish Civil War and portraits of characters from life in Galicia during his time. He combined his artistic work with that of the typical village photographer who does commissioned portraits. The exhibition also includes the cameras that he used to develop his work. We can see it on Calle Rúa Matadoiro de Muxia.

Las Pedras de la Barca and the Sanctuary of the Virgen de la Barca

Legend has it that the Apostle Santiago had a vision of the Virgin in the place where the church stands today. He was discouraged because he was not being heard by many people to whom he preached and Our Lady appeared to him in a stone boat to encourage him and tell him to return to Jerusalem. The stones that made up the boat remained on the shore and over time a primitive hermitage was built in the twelfth century, with various modifications over time.

Many pilgrims from Compostela travel to the place of the sanctuary and thus consider their journey finished. Many believers attribute healing properties to the monumental stones.

Cape and Touriñán Lighthouse

From Muxia, it only takes twenty minutes by car (16 kms) to reach this small peninsula that juts out into the ocean for almost a kilometer.

The lighthouse was built in the late nineteenth century and rises 93 meters above sea level and has a range of 36 kilometers. It is remarkable that it is located in the westernmost area of mainland Spain. The strong winds whip the rocks of the cliff, shaping the landscape in time with the endless passage of time.

Carry out the Route of the Caldeiras Do Castro - Couceiro

A route of approximately 10 kilometers that is done on foot, with comfortable clothes and shoes. The objective is to cross the natural area to finally reach the point where the river turns into a waterfall to flow into small lakes with peaceful waters.

The excursion begins at the O Castro Recreational Area, an area equipped with tables and benches to rest or enjoy a picnic. Visit Santo Eutel de O Castro, a chapel built in 1660. Later we must go down the stairs prepared for this purpose and the descent completes the 200 meters until we reach the first of several waterfalls that usually has more river flow.

We complete the journey by visiting a series of stately homes from the eighteenth century.

Moraime Monastery

  • Description: Built in the 12th century and declared a historical-artistic complex, it is the remainder of an old Benedictine monastery, and is key to understanding the history of Muxía. It is built on an ancient Roman necropolis, contains a basilica plan with three naves and three apses. The decoration of the façade is very peculiar, where there are rose windows and small Romanesque windows that adapt to the relief of the land, where it gives the impression of imbalance. Through the southern part of the wall you could access the old monastery. In it you can see a representation of the Last Supper.

Sanctuary of La Barca y Piedras

  • Description: You cannot go to this church without knowing its legends. The apostle Santiago had been preaching the gospel in Hispania without success, and he gave up. At that point where he was praying, a stone boat appeared in the sea and in it was Mary who consoled him, encouraged him and ended his mission in that place, asking him to return to Jerusalem. When finishing, I leave the remains of the boat, which are the famous rocks that are in front of the temple. Later, during the 19th century, two lateral constructions, the rectory house and a españada, were added to the building, which are still preserved.

Cape Touriñán

  • Description: It is located in cabo, which is a small peninsula that juts 1 km into the sea. Its altitude is 93 meters above sea level. The rock that composes it is granite, the erosion of which has formed small deposits of boulders, and stony bars forming an islet called A Ínsua on the west side of the cape. At the western end of the cape it contains a series of rocks that enter the sea between 300 and 400 meters, known as A Laxe de Buxeirados, and they have also been dangerous for navigation, causing some serious shipwrecks.
