Calvary
We can also see from here the famous ‘Sleeping Giant’ (Inis Tuaisceart) and also the stone Calvary gleaming in the sun (sometimes), which is built as a memorial to the many seamen who lost their lives in this treacherous stretch of sea. Included in this are the 297 crewmembers of the Santa Maria de la Rossa, the flagship of the Spanish Armada, which sank here in a storm on the 21st September 1588.
