      ... used by traders and pre Christian pilgrims. Most pilgrims and traders originally continued on to the coast which was thought to be the edge of the world, hence it's name, Finisterre. It is situated on a stretch of coastline known as the Costa da Morte due to the hundreds of ships which have been wrecked there by savage sea currents which collide with howling gales which whip up huge waves causing havoc.
