The most precious razor clams in the world: their flavor is incomparable. Razor clams propagate among the cliffs of Cabo de Finisterre. Under the water below the rocks are extended sandbanks, which provide a very rich and salty habitat. These clams must be harvested by hand, and the process is perilous. The divers collect each one by hand - one by one. The work is extremely dangerous. In five long hours of underwater diving, the divers can only get 10-20 kilos. Diving can only be done when the waters are calm.

Cabo de Finisterre is a thin spit of land that juts out into the turbulent Atlantic Ocean. It is the roughest part of the coast in Galicia. The name translates in English as 'the end of the world' and was the final goal of many of the pilgrims of Santiago de Compostela. It is an area composed entirely of cliffs known as the Costa de la Muerte - the Coast of Death. It is also a coastline buffeted with high winds making any fishing enterprise extremely dangerous.
