At CaminoWays.com, the walking and cycling holiday specialists, we are launching a brand new Camino trail for Summer 2016: the spectacular Camino dos Faros, the Lighthouse Way.
A superb coastal route, the Lighthouse Way takes in the wild and rugged beauty of Atlantic Galicia in all its glory. The route is named after the many lighthouses scattered along the cliffs and capes of this stunning region.
Walkers on the Camino dos Faros will be rewarded with spectacular ocean views, pristine sandy beaches where to go for a swim, dramatic cliffs and a rich cultural and archaeological heritage. Along the route, walkers will reach one of Galicia’s most important megalithic tombs (Dolmen de Dombate) and pre-historic villages (6th century village Castro A Cibda), a wealth of Romanesque chapels and sanctuaries and of course, many lighthouses, most of them still in operation today.
Staying in charming fishing villages along the way, walkers will get a chance to sample some of the best fish and seafood Galicia is renowned for. This area of ‘Green Spain’ is famous for its gooseneck barnacles (percebes), harvested from exposed sea cliffs by intrepid ‘percebeiros’.
The best way to discover this hidden gem is on foot: its breath taking scenery, delicious cuisine and ancient history. The final point of the trail is the iconic Cape Fisterra, the ‘End of the World’, where you will meet pilgrims coming from Santiago de Compostela.
