The pano was taken in Spain, but look to Portugal.
The Miño River (Minho in Portuguese) rises in Serra de Meira, in Galiza and it meets the Atlantic Ocean between A Guarda (Spain) and Caminha (Portugal).
In the last 75 km it forms the border between Spain and Portugal


Gorgeous! I will give it a try. My first thought was ... one of this big rivers in Spain. Let's see if I am right ...

I found it. It is of course a special river - what else if Giuseppe is taking its portrait. I do not tell, go ahead!

How unfortunate that none took up the challenge again ....

I did not take part since I considered unfair the algorithm followed:
Google "desembocadura espana" - Images, and within 30 seconds of scrolling Betracht a matching image.
(Initially I had suspicions on this and on another place).

You are of course right, this is a possibility to approach the problem - I took the more old-fashioned way and had a good time exploring the Atlantic coast of Spain in Google Maps - I started at the French border :-))

I did not know this potential of Google. Of course takes away the joy of discovery. Give me some time and I will arrange the pano.

Sadly, I was at work, so I could not participate...BR Jan.

Christoph: fine job/tour!
Besides the Rio Miño I had in mind Betanzos and Ribadeo, but Ribadeo was ruled out because I remembered a huge bridge, and the valley is not so wide.
Now I learn from the map 1) that also in Betanzos there is a bridge and 2) that the source of the Miño, crazily enough, is very close to Ribadeo on the N coast!
