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.

Trip Highlights

Santiago

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. Next, to the Catherdrial, there are beautiful gardens to visit. And so so so much more!

Cee

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!

Fisterra

When pilgrims reach the end of their journey they will come to the Cape in Fisterra. There is an old historic lighthouse. The lighthouse is considered to be one of the most powerful lighthouses in Europe. To add to the wonder, the wild and treacherous Cape Finisterre is said to be the ‘End of the World’ since medieval times.
