2016 - Playa de Las Catedrales, Lugo, Spain

After our visit to the ancient ruins of Coaña, we decided it was time to make out way to the water to cool off. Our destination was Playa de Las Catedrales. Located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, the natural arches and caves of the area were created over time by tidal and wave erosion. During low tide the area is known for its spectacular beach and the caves that are hidden during hide tides. Unfortunately, we visited during the mid-tide and were relegated to the tops of the cliffs. I wanted to point out the interesting geology here.. note the sedimentary layers that make up the cathedrals.
