Walk to the Atlantic Coast, along the Finisterre Way or Camino de Fisterra to the ‘End or Edge of the World’! The quiet Finisterre Way of the Camino de Santiago is the only route starting in Santiago. This unique Camino passes quiet villages, remote farmland and unspoiled landscapes; finally reaching the sea cliffs of the westernmost point in Spain, at Cape Fisterra (Finisterre in Spanish). After Fisterra, the trail follows the stunning craggy coastline of Atlantic Galicia to the fishing village of Muxía. This beautiful region of Galicia is known as the ‘Coast of Death’ and Fisterra (Finis Terrae) was once considered to be the end of the world! It is a land full of fascinating traditions, delicious seafood and spectacular scenery.
This tour will allow you to claim your ‘Finisterrana’ pilgrim certificate in Fisterra and a ‘Muxiana’ pilgrim certificate if you decide to continue along the coast to Muxía.
