[8-21-2022] Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz Question: Known as the Coast of Death, these tempestuous waters have claimed thousands of lives. Where are we?

The given options are:

  • Newfoundland
  • Iceland
  • Spain

Correct Answer: Spain

Info: The Costa da Morte (Coast of Death) is on the northwest shore of Spain and faces the open Atlantic Ocean. The Costa da Morte extends from the villages of Muros and Malpica. The outer cape region is known for anthropological, historical, and geographical reasons. Its name in the Galician language is Fisterra, which descends from the Roman legend, which held that this area was the end of the world. Unlike Spain’s Mediterranean beach, its Atlantic coast is rugged, rocky, and prone to storms and fog. Since the 14th century, more than 600 ships have been lost in these waters, costing thousands of lives. It is an area that has suffered several oil spills, including the spill from the Prestige in 2002. Adding to its ominous reputation is the fact that centuries ago, when people believed the world was flat, the westernmost cape on the Costa da Morte was thought to be where the known world ended. There is also a local legend that the wind creates wild nightmares. (Ref)
