Walking the Camino Finisterre - Muxia Way from Santiago to Cape Fisterra or Muxia

Summary

  • Camino Finisterre

This Camino explores the Camino Fisterra/Muxia / Finisterre Way, following the iconic Camino de Santiago de Compostela, the famous Way of Saint James.
The Jacobean Way comes to an end in the city of Santiago. However, many of the pilgrims decide to extend their journey to the ”Coast of Death”. 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 complement your walk.
Everyday, 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!
