Located in the province of A Coruña, in the autonomous community of Galicia, in northwestern Spain, Road DP-2205 (nicknamed ‘The Cliff Road’) is a very scenic drive. Not recommended if you have passengers that don't like heights.
It’s said to be one of the most beautiful drives of the country. This isolated and very quiet road is a great drive around a unique and rugged terrain. The journey offers an exhilarating driving experience, with superb views. There are lots of viewpoints, official and unofficial. Along the way you can feel the strength of the wind, inhale the scent of the sea and watch powerful waves.
Resting on the far away north west corner of Spain, it’s not an easy road: paved but very narrow has some steep sections. The journey is littered with outstanding sea-landscapes. The road offers stunning views of the cliffs at Vixía Herbeira, the highest on the European mainland, at 621 metres high. Views are spectacular over the surrounding inlets, providing scenes that are quite different and spectacular.
Surrounded by the ruggedness of the Atlantic coast, the road is 13.9 km long and links the towns of Cariño and San Andrés de Teixido. The legend says that you'll visit this beautiful place when you are dead if you didn't while alive. This scenic road offers the best coastal panoramas. Driving is difficult and should not be attempted in adverse conditions.
