One of the most magical and spectacular rituals of Galician culture and originating from the Celts, is the exorcism of evil spirits by means of the Conxuro da Queimada (Queimada Conjuration). This exorcism materializes in the tradition of the “Queimada”, a magical drink of fire, eau-de-vie, sugar, lemon and some grains of coffee, the preparation of which, in combination with the magical ritual of our warlock, becomes a succulent magic potion which as it goes down our throats frees us of all evil and all bewitchment.

The Tower of Hercules (Torre de Hércules) is an ancient Roman lighthouse in north-western Spain. The structure is 55 m tall and overlooks the North Atlantic coast of Spain. The structure, almost 1900 years old and rehabilitated in 1791, is the oldest Roman lighthouse in use today.

The Tower of Hercules is a National Monument of Spain, and since June 27, 2009, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the second tallest lighthouse in Spain, after the Faro de Chipiona. (source)
