Casa da Balea
Casa da Balea or the “Whale´s Home” is a charming little Rustic Guesthouse in the historic centre of Corcubión, a fishing village with a historical-artistic complex. As the name suggests, it is the first theme accommodation in Spain dedicated to the world of whales.
The Way of Saint James passes right in front of our main door leading thousands of pilgrims each year towards Fisterra.
We have a facade with terraces and a garden that runs onto the seaside promenade. The house offers splendid views over the old quarter, the port and the inlet of Corcubión together with the mythic Mount Pindo. The beach of Quenxe is only a ten-minute walk from us.
The building, which is a traditional Galician stone house with open and windowed balconies, is more than a hundred years old and has been renovated with care.
You will be surprised at seeing both the carefully chosen decoration that reflects our marine and whale theme and our rooms that are all decorated in a different style boasting works of art and handicrafts.
