The Beaches of Spain...Cathedrals Beach

Playa de Las Catedrales, the 'Beach of the Cathedrals' is located in Ribadeo, in Lugo, Galicia on the coast of the Cantabrian Sea. It is in the area of Galicia called the Rias Altas, and it has been declared a Natural Monument by the Galician Ministry for the Environment.

The Cathedrals are a spectacular sight, known for their arches and caves, seen only at low tide. You can even see percebes, a delicacy in Spain because of the dangerous way in which they must be harvested. The tide comes in quickly. If you go, check the tide schedule and plan accordingly.

  1. OMGoodness, Kelly! LOVE the Dove beauty sketches video. Whoever Dove hired to do this advertising campaign is absolutely brilliant. They are causing an entire generation to think twice about true beauty. Love that.

  2. What a great walk with lovely images. Cathedrals beach is a most popular beach in the world. Next vacation I definitely like to see this beach. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I hope you do get to visit. It is spectacular. Thanks so much for stopping by. :-)
