The entrance of the hostel recives us with two images which support the idea of a placed vinculated with the dramaturgy of the sea and with its epic conscience: the wreck. Costa da Morte acquire its most tragical identity from the metonymy of the wreck, a real sequence of the difficult life that man had, through centuries, in his fight against sea, this friend/enemy which made possible the economic development of this area and that the Romanesque literature convert into legends and fables.
Patients flat manuscripts which José López Redonda, from the Pepe Olegario's family, Sardiñeiro sailor, designed as a product of his research for more than fifty years of work in the seas of Costa da Morte, allow us to locate the wrecks of the numerous shipwrecks that had suffered from Cabo de Touriñán to Punta Lens.
A photograph made by Xurxo Lobato of the last of the great shipwrecks of the gigantic oil tanker Prestige, symbol of catastrophism and the chaos at the sea, which sank off the coast of Muxía, in November 2002. It Constitutes the eloquent image of the tragic feeling of the man's life at the sea.
