The Camino de Santiago is the perfect experience to disconnect from the daily routine and forget the problems for a few days, either through the paths that run through the interior of the Peninsula or those that surround the coast. And if we want to enjoy the latter and relax in the sea breeze, we cannot miss the Sanctuary of San Andrés de Teixido in Cedeira.

The Sanctuary visited by all mortals

"Va de muerto el que no va de vivo". That is the Galician saying that characterises this place full of legends, located in the parish of Teixido, Cedeira. It is a sanctuary whose church dates back to the 16th and 17th centuries, although it is said that three centuries earlier there was already a monastery in this location.

The church is Gothic-Baroque in style, with a clear maritime influence. The Gothic can be easily seen on the outside, and the Baroque on the altarpiece. Of the original construction, however, only the door on the north wall remains, as well as some paintings.

The location of this building is simply breathtaking, as it is surrounded by cliffs 140 metres above the sea. They are said to be among the highest in Europe, and offer views that amaze all those who enjoy them in person. 

San Andrés de Teixido is the eighth stop on the Camiño do Mar, a route increasingly popular for offering along its route numerous coastal enclaves with incredible landscapes like these. And is that many pilgrims believe that the roads that reach this parish are as spectacular as their goal. Undoubtedly, a place worth visiting.
