Aerial Views of Galicia




Top contributor and Drone Video Award Finalist ZilverSchmitz used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create this marvelous aerial tour of Galicia, the northwesternmost region of Spain.  One look at a map will suggest that this is a very distinctive region - its border with Portugal (to the south) is as long as its borders with fellow Spanish regions, and its coastline is longer than all of its land borders combined.  The video features footage of the country's long coastline as well as some of its cities and towns, including the city of A Coruna.  

Galicia's Stunning Coastline


This is Galicia!


Contributor LeVoyagedesKoumoul used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to create this beautiful aerial collage of the coastline of Spain's Galicia province, which occupies the country's northwestern corner.  Galicia has an immense coastline on the Bay of Biscay to the north and the open Atlantic Ocean to its west.  The countless bays, peninsulas, and offshore rocks, while deadly to shipping (the northwestern apex of the coastline is nicknamed Costa Muerta: the Coast of Death), are visually appealing in the extreme.

Estuary of the Miño river. A Guarda, Galicia, Spain


The Minho is the fourth-largest river on the Iberian Peninsula by discharge volume, after the Douro, Ebro, and Tagus Rivers.  It rises in the mountains of Galicia and flows southwards, then turns west to form the border with Portugal to the south, picking up the Sil, Neira, Avia, Barbantiño, Búbal, and Arnoya rivers as tributaries before discharging into the Atlantic Ocean.  In this drone video by Diego_Al_Al, you'll get an aerial view of the estuary of the river, which runs a total length of 350 km or about 220 mi.  

Cape Finisterre Lighthouse


Faro de Finisterre


Spain's Cape Finisterre isn't (as its name translates) the "end of the world", but in pre-Columbian times it probably felt pretty close.  It's a peninsula in the northwestern corner of Galicia, the region which covers the northwestern corner of Spain.  In historical times, the cape was associated with the famous Saint James Way pilgrimage route.  The most westerly point in mainland Spain, the cape's most recognizable landmark is the Cape Finisterre Lighthouse, which you will see in this drone video.

The western coast of Spain's Galicia region has a series of four inlets known as rias.  Sometimes confused with fjords (which they resemble when seen on a map), rias are valleys that become submerged due to changing sea levels.  The northernmost of the four Galician rias is called Ria de Muros y Noya.  Seen here in this drone video by contributor mlarino, it's located just south of the treacherous Coast of Death (Costa Muerta).  With only the municipality of Muros and a few smaller town on its shores, it's the most remote of the four rias.
