Last year in October I went on holidays to get away of my routine and visit my family.
We decided to travel around Europe to do what we do best: eat and drink.
I love Europe, there's something about it that makes me want to come back all the time.
In our journey we visited different cities and towns, but there was one that really caught my heart in Spain: Ortigueira
Ortigueira is a small municipality in A Coruña, Galicia with beautiful vegetation, landscape and people. I must admit that my favourite part was the food I tried there but that might be part of another post.
In general, there's no much to do there; it's a very small town with beautiful houses and not many places to go to. However, we stayed in the best place possible: in front of El Banco Más Bonito del Mundo/ The Best Bank/Bech of the World on top of Loiba's cliffs.
In Los acantilados de Loiba you can find amazing views of the ocean and a never ending horizon that brings peace to your soul. It actually reminded me a bit of Australia, so I wasn't THAT impressed but it's definitely worth it.
On top of these beautiful cliffs there is a bench that someone baptised as "The best BANK of the world". The legend goes that an Asian couple sat there and loved the view so much that decided to engrave the bench with those words. We all know they meant BENCH.
Thanks to multiple people taking photos of El Banco, So many people visit this place in summer and it's becoming very popular. The once lonely bench became viral on the internet.
This place is incredible and it was protagonist of a night photography contest called Earth and Sky Photo Contest on Dark Skies Importance.
I'm a hopeless romantic so I had to sit there, enjoy the view, say silly words to my husband and of course... take some photos!
Here I leave some for you to enjoy.
If you go to Galicia, this is a must see :)
