Vilán lighthouse

February 9th, 2010 | by nick |

The lighthouse at Cape Vilán signals one of the most dangerous stretches along the treacherous Costa da Morte,  It is also one of the most beautiful and atmospheric places in Northern Spain, and a great spot for watching seabirds such as guillemots, shags and divers, particularly in winter. See also the nearby Cementario de los Ingleses where the crew of HMS Serpent were buried, after it sank off this coast in 1890.
