San Andrés de Teixido

“…vai de morto o que non foi de vivo” or “visited in death by those who didn’t visit in life

So says our tradition and, at least once in a lifetime, the Galicians feel obliged to go on pilgrimage to this tiny chapel on top of the highest cliffs in Continental Europe, under penalty of having to return once dead, whether as lost souls or as reptiles

An iconic spot of the magical place that is Galicia in a setting of overwhelming beauty.
