'Best Bank of the World'

Viewpoint in Bares Peninsula

West along the Loiba clifftops from Praia do Picón, two benches after 200m and 400m afford magnificent panoramas along the jagged coast all the way from the Punta da Estaca de Bares to Cabo Ortegal. The second bench has acquired celebrity status under the curious English name 'Best Bank of the World', thanks to a confusion about the Spanish word banco, meaning both bench and bank. You may have to queue behind squads of selfie-stick-wielders to actually sit on it.
