Ortigueira is really a seaport and town within the province of the Coruna the autonomous community of Galicia in northwestern The country. It is one of the comarca of Ortegal. It’s on the northern slope from the Serra da Faladoira, the forest Mera as well as on the eastern shore from the Ria de Santa Marta—a winding, rock-bound and far indented inlet from the Bay of Biscay, between Capes Ortegal and Bares, the northernmost headlands from the Peninsula. The city is recognized for its romantic surroundings and ocean bathing possibilities.
The industries are fishing and farming. The harbour is well sheltered. Because of its shallowness, large vessels cannot enter, but there’s an essential coasting trade, regardless of the harmful character from the coast and also the prevalence of fogs and gales.
