Spanish Costa, natively known as A Costa do Marisco, is a term used to represent the coast of the Galicia region in Spain. The English translation of the term is "Coast of the Seafood."

Galicia, the North-western corner of the Iberian Peninsula is renowned for golden sandy beaches, granite cliffs; Celtiberian ruins, and its old Christian roots. Since this region is known as an important fishing region of Spain, the place Costa del Marisco or the Spanish Coast has been called the "Coast of the Seafood."

In fact, since the middle of the 20th century, when Spain started to market itself as a holiday destination for tourists from UK and the rest of the Europe, the entire Iberian Peninsula had its entire coast named in the "Costas" tradition, for instance Costa Dorada, Costa del Azahar, Costa Blanca, Costa Brava, Costa de la Luz, Costa del Sol, and Costa del Marisco (Spanish Costa).

The word Costa is a commonly used surname in the countries of Portugal and Brazil. It has also seen some usage in countries like Spain and Italy. The name 'Costa' is derived form the word meaning coast or riverbank, was used o describe someone who lived near the coast.

A notable namesake is Lorenzo Costa, an Italian Painter during the time of the Renaissance. He was born in the year 1460, and died at the age of seventy-five in the year 1535. He greatly contributed to the Bolognese school of painting, although he is regarded by some as part of the school of Ferrara. Some state that he did his training along with Cosimo Tura. His most famous painting has been the Madonna and Child with the Bentivoglio family on the wall of the Bentivoglio chapel.
