Walk to the Atlantic Coast and ‘Edge of the World’ along the magical Finisterre Camino or Camino de Fisterra, in a land full of fascinating traditions, delicious seafood and spectacular scenery. The quiet Finisterre Camino is a unique route, as it is the only Camino trail starting in Santiago de Compostela and heading West to the Atlantic Ocean and Cape Fisterra. This is an ancient trail linked to the pre-Christian origins of the Camino de Santiago.
Quiet villages and hamlets, remote farmland and unspoiled countryside await on this Camino route to the sea cliffs of the westernmost point in Spain, at Cape Fisterra.
After Fisterra, we recommend you continue your journey along the craggy coastline of Atlantic Galicia to the fishing village of Muxía, famed for its sanctuary by the ocean and ‘magic’ stones. This stunning region of Galicia is known as the ‘Costa da Morte’ famous for its wild beauty, seafood and interesting legends.
On this Camino you can claim your ‘Finisterrana’ pilgrim certificate in Fisterra and a ‘Muxiana’ pilgrim certificate if you continue along the coast to Muxía. This is a beautiful trail over 7 nights from Santiago de Compostela all the way to the coast with 5 star reviews.
