A Ferida

Next to the Sanctuary of A Virxe da Barca in Muxía, we find one of the most famous sculptures of the west coast of Galicia, A Ferida. Translated as "The Wound" it is a sculpture composed of 2 large stones of gratin that was inaugurated on September 12, 2003.

Considered the largest sculpture in Galicia, and even in Spain, it is a work that symbolizes the bitter accident that occurred on the Galician coast due to the Prestige. This accident occurred at the end of 2002 caused a great catastrophe along the Galician coast, causing thousands of people to arrive as volunteers to help minimize the damage. This sculpture is a tribute to all these volunteers.

A Ferida is a work of more than 11 meters high and weighing 400 tons. It is located in the surroundings of the Sanctuary of A Virxe da Barca in Muxía and very close to the Lighthouse of Muxía, well known for being part of the Camiño dos Faros.

Although the size of this sculpture and its significance is enough to attract thousands of tourists a year, more and more pilgrims are coming to visit it. They come from Santiago on the Camino de Santiago to Finisterre and Muxía, an increasingly popular Jacobean route.
