Fisterra, is a traditional fishing village, about about 5.000 inhabitants where the Cape Finisterre, the end of the earth for more than 3.000 years from when the Chaldeans people who worshiped are, traveled from Mesopotamia to Fisterra to see where the sun every night and put in tribute to such a thing decided to make the Ara Solis, an altar to the sun, later Christianized.
In 130 B.C. Decimus Junius Brutus Galaico conqueror of Gallaecia, came to Fisterra and the Ara Solis made sacrifices for their victories. That was when the rocks Finisterre saw the sunset over the ocean waves. What the historian Florus collected in his work:
“Something more extensive was the conquest of Decimus Brutus, who tamed the Lusitanian and Celtic to all people of Galicia, and passed over the river of Oblivion, whose shores trembled with terror his soldiers; and having traveled victorious entire ocean coast, it did not withdraw its eagles until he saw the sun dive into the sea, and Skyfire drown in the waters; I could not look at without horror, without committing a kind of sacrilege”
Costa da Morte
Costa da Morte is an area of the Galician Atlantic seaboard which was traditionally limited between Malpica and Finisterre. The name Costa da Morte has two origins, the first being a maritime area of difficult seaworthiness with the storms that lash the coast, leading to multiple shipwrecks long history, as the best known in recent decades with Cason and the Prestige. You are also given the name to be placed here to earth, and thus where "die" every day the sun hiding under the sea.
