Muros is located north of the Ría de Muros and Noia. The main activity in Muros is fishing and it receives a large number of visitors in summer who come to this lively coastal town to enjoy its gastronomy and its spectacular beaches.
In winter, it rains in Muros, not always or all the time, and squalls and Atlantic storms bring wind, rain and a mild temperature at this time of year. However, cloudless and bright days are no exception.
This is the best opportunity to know in person why this part of Galicia is called Costa da Morte (Coast of Death), where the great ocean waves break. The lighthouses and the long lonely beaches are transformed into unforgettable walks. Boots and a raincoats are enough to enjoy this experience. Late in the day, listen to the wind next to the hotel's fireplace, with a comforting albariño wine or rias baixas, grown next to this same sea, while the always appetising products of the estuary arrive in the many nearby bars, taverns and restaurants.
What to See
On foot, you should not miss the peculiar maritime collegiate church which is five minutes from the hotel. Further on, the seafront of the town is a walk that will take you to the tide mills or to the Rebordiño lighthouse, while you contemplate the work of the mussel rafts. A quiet walk through the inner streets of the town is highly recommended, without a map or guide, with the certainty that it will lead us to imagine what was an isolated town communicated only by sea for centuries.
A little further, in a short drive, the first lighthouses of a route that we can extend as much as we like. Unforgettable landscapes are guaranteed.
You should not miss visiting Carnota beach, a sandy area of more than 8 kilometers, with levels of protection and conservation like no other. A little further on, the Ézaro waterfall, in which the river falls directly into the sea from a great height, making it possible to reach the very foot of the waterfall. It is even possible, if the sea allows it, to visit the Loberías Islands and its lighthouse, so called for being an occasional refuge for sea lions.
