Have a nice ride, which take advantage of some painters to make their first steps, and many photographers are bringing the bride and groom on their wedding day to make a story in this beautiful place.
Behind the old lighthouse, a big bell, not many years had a booth in order to get on touch when passing boats.
Many were women who once came up here to play the hood while someone, they took advantage to say “Adios”, wagging a towel to the wind.
The first inhabitants of Ortiguera built a humble shrine under the advocation of St. Augustine, which were only a few remnants of foundation (in 1953), but the extreme tip of the coast, for the present church, which in its first trace and the center of the field, whether in the main data of the seventeenth century, was subsequently amended and extended, providing comprehensive and pleasant chapel, site of Super and frequent worship.

Port .-
Until 1918 there was only towards the dock and this time a penalty level that dock near the boat, but thanks to the zeal and interest of D. MA Jose Cienfuegos could build a small dock.
That sir, was the City Council of an amount Coana 3,000 pesetas to the work of the pier with dynamite and blow a shame, as the “Stone of Porto, at the entrance and there was a real danger for ships immediately that the sea is a bustling little. And subsequently made a number of works which give the appearance that it now has. This endowed by nature with excellent natural conditions, but limited by its size. Loss and the importance of its port, which was even commercial traffic and industry, has today a residential function.
It is a very picturesque port, where they learned to swim most of the children of Ortiguera. It has a stone beach, where the river empties Fundia, who once used as laundry women, on stone, close to the mouth, on the beach.
Beach .-
It is a cove between Cape San Agustin in and road Foxos called Amelle. It’s surrounded by cliffs and has two entrances: one from a neighborhood of low Ortiguera La Rasa (Poceirua), with 273 steps ( climb down and good!) And from another part of Foxos down, with fewer steps, but longer.
It has clean sand and is not sticky. It is very quiet, I would say almost “family”. It is much visited by foreigners, and from about 10 years ago has lifeguard all summer.
