The scenery around the cliffThis story is actually the result of a misunderstanding and mistranslation. A Celtic folk festival is held annually in Ortigueira, the seaport near the cliff, and musicians come from all over Europe to play traditional Celtic music. In 2010, some musicians from Scotland visited the Loiba cliff. They were astounded by the scenery, and wrote “The Best Bank of the World” on the back of the bench. “The Bank” in English was translated literally into the Spanish word banco (meaning “bench”).
This is the original bench. As it became famous, it starting receiving many visitors, so it is frequently maintained, with the original graffiti being replaced each time.

Completely ordinary bench in a small park near my home in Madrid. For comparison.This name might seem like an extravagant advertisement, but the scenery that includes this simple bench creates a happy moment in the midst of nature where you can forget the hustle and bustle of the big city. People have even said that it inspired them to consider their past and future. Because of this, it debuted on a TV campaign in 2013 for a famous furniture manufacturer and retailer in Northern Europe. This is an excellent video of the wonderful bench from the air taken by a drone. https://vimeo.com/148284618 If this were Japan, this cliff edge facing the sea would be the perfect location for the typical final scene of a two-hour-long suspense show: the real perpetrator, the suspect thought to be the perpetrator until a moment ago, and the cops and investigators are all together; they go over all the events leading up to that point and solve the riddle, revealing the truth behind the crime; suddenly caught off guard, the true perpetrator is securely caught and placed in a police car and case solved. The Spanish version of the Tojinbo cliffs in Japan.
