Caión Historic-artistic site.
One of the most attractive places on the coast of A Coruña, reproduced a thousand times by photographers and painters, is the town of Caión. With its white houses grouped in the small peninsula, it is one of the most picturesque spots on the coast of the Costa da Morte. Two thousand years ago, the Greco-Roman geographer Strabo named it the Great Port of the Ártabros, which stretches from Cabo Prior (Ferrol) to the Sisargas Islands and the Cape of San Adrián (Malpica).
All of this can be seen from the Atalaya de Caión, a spot with incredible views. In the 16th century the locals would use this spot to watch for passing whales as it used to be an important whaling station.
