Introduction

The pretty and peaceful village of Lires sits just inland from the coast, above the little Ría de Lires. By road it's about 13km north of Fisterra and 20km south of Muxía. For walkers it's conveniently about halfway between Fisterra and Muxía on both the 29km route of the Camino de Santiago and the 51km route of the Camiño dos Faros. With two rivers meeting here, amid typically green, wooded Costa da Morte countryside, plus some wonderful beaches nearby, it's a fine spot to linger even if you're not walking any camino.
