Cape Finisterre (Galician: Cabo Fisterra) is a rock-bound peninsula on the west coast of Galicia, Spain. In Roman times it was believed to be the end of the known world.The name Finisterre, like that of Finistère in France, derives from the Latin finis terrae, meaning "end of the earth". It is sometimes said to be the westernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula. However, Cabo da Roca in Portugal is about 16.5 kilometres (10.3 mi) further west and thus the westernmost point of continental Europe. Cabo Fisterra cape hides the true secret of the Costa da Morte: wild rough landscapes and amazing beaches, some (protected by the cape) with calm waters and others with strong waves like that of Mar de Fóra, one of Galicia's wildest beaches. And the greatest attraction of all times: the sunset over the enormity of the ocean, the sea of the end of the world.
