Camino Finisterre - Muxia Way

From Santiago, walk the Camino Finisterre and reach the end of the world and burn your past!

Located in the westernmost part of Galicia, looking out onto the rough waters of the Atlantic Ocean and what many believed to be the end of the known world, is Cape Finisterre.  Here is where pilgrims have been known to throw their shoes into the sea to symbolise their new beginning in life on finishing the Camino.

The Camino Finisterre can include both the towns of Fisterra and Muxía.  These towns both have a rich history and beautiful legends like that of the Sanctuary of Nosa Senora da Barca outside Muxía, where it is believed to be the vestiges of the stone boat that the Virgin Mary sailed on to visit St James and encourage him on his preachings.

Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre

6 Days
Easy Difficulty

The Jacobean Way comes to an end in the city of Santiago. However, many of the pilgrims decide to extend their journey to the ”Costa da Morte”. The Camino passes remote, hilly villages and finishes at the steep cliffs of Spain’s western-most point. Beautiful scenery and amazing legends and history will compliment your walk.

Every day, during the walk, you are guaranteed a high level of comfort and gastronomy. The trail is clearly marked with the ”Scallop Shell” showing you the way. This section requires a reasonable level of fitness.

When you arrive in Fisterra or Muxia, you can obtain a special Muxia-Fisterra Pilgrimage Certificate!
