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

In Santiago, there is so much to see and do. You can visit the Cathedral. Explore the city. Go to see the fish market. Eat lots of tapas. Or why not take a stroll around the beautiful park of Alameda and take a picture with the statue of the two Maria’s or get a great shot of the Cathedral from the viewing point.
While walking through Cee pilgrims will see lots of beaches. The Estorde beach is a seashell-shaped beach with calm waters, perfect for a quick dip! Relax in this quiet village before your last day walking to the ‘End of the World’.
Just beyond the town of Fisterra is Cape Finisterre known since Roman times as the ‘End of the World’. This is the final stop for many pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago. The finality of the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic ocean provide a great backdrop to the end of a Camino journey. Here you will also find the famous Lighthouse that plays a vital role in safely guided ships along the coastline which is known as the Coast of Death!
