Built of almost 750 tonnes of rolled iron, it was completed in 1893 and is still in service today.

Cornites procession on mount Serantes
Since the 19th century a procession has been held on Mount Serantes every Easter Monday. The “cornite” from which it takes its name is a circular loaf of bread baked with hard-boiled egg and sausage inside it that is traditionally eaten on that day.
