The Roncudo, main cape of Bergantinos together with Santo Hadrian and Nariga, owes its name to the echo of the roaring Atlantic exploting in the coast. There, in the cliffs, men and women escape from big waves and gelid whirls trying to collect the precious seafood.

The Roncudo lighthouse warns the marine traffic of this dangerous sea. Traditional shipwrecks scene, the stone crosses built here remember the drowned and missing sailors.

The natural area of Roncudo allows a complete excursion along its abrupt coasts and small hidden beaches, near of which are found the typical taverns of Corme.
