The Camino dos Faros follows the coastline from Malpica to Finsiterre. Passing by many lights houses, the terrain is rugged but the views are breathtaking out of the Atlantic Ocean.

Faro de Muxia

Faro de Muxia

Located on the Muxia rocks, facing the Atlantic Ocean, you will find the famous lighthouse Faro de Muxia. This famous lighthouse has also given the Camino its name – Camino dos Faros. Surrounded by flat rocks, the legend tells that these are magical rocks that would never slip into the sea.

Coastal landscapes Camino dos Faros

Coastal Landscapes

Hiking in Galicia, and especially along the coast, is the best way to see the wilderness of this region. Green hills and wild seascapes will have your soul reconnected and singing all the way to Finisterre. It is certainly a nice place for self-reflection.

Food in Camino dos Faros restaurant

Local Seafood Cuisine

Since you are on a coastal route, the main thing to discover here is seafood. Try some fried octopus, marinated ‘a la Gallego’. You can also get some grilled prawns. Accompany these dishes with a glass of wine, a Finca de Malpica, a red wine made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo grapes.
