Muxia is a beautiful little town and has some stunning beaches; it is one of the final destinations for pilgrims on the Camino. Muxia also supports an active fishing industry. There is a great little man made harbor that is walled on two and a half sides. There is also a promenade that runs the full length of the town plotting a course that is parallel with the main coast facing street of Rua Virxe de Barca.
Muxía is part of the Costa da Morte (the "Coast of Death"). The Costa Da Morte was given this name because of the large number of shipwrecks along its rocky shore. The Costa Da Morte is one of the three regions of the Costa del Marisco or "The Seafood Coast."
Muxía is 3 kilometers from a famous monastery that is now used as a church, the Church of San Xulián de Moraime. The name of the town, "Muxía", refers to the monks who established this monastery.
