PORT OF ESPASANTE
|Description||This is a typical coastal town whose main appeal lies in its two large beaches, A Cuncha and San Antonio, its seaside promenade and the port, which has a busy fish market. In the south of the town you can enjoy examples of traditional coastal construction, and see the remains of the old fish processing factory, currently in ruins.
The Cuncha beach has a small quay and a recently built sheltered dock. They form an anchorage where small vessels can seek shelter. Phoenician sailors obtained raw materials – particularly tin – from Atlantic shores and began their journeys in search of supplies from the 6th century B.C.
