The Way of St James 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 shared stories of amazing legends and history will compliment your walk.

Santiago de Compostela

Santiago

In Santiago, there is so much to see and do. You can visit the Cathedral. Explore the mediaeval city. Go to 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? There is no end of things to see and do in this beautiful place!

Cee

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 before you continue your journey! Relax in this quiet village and maybe even check out the Farmer’s market before your last day walking to the ‘End of the World’.

Finisterre

Fisterra

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 provides 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 guiding ships along the coastline which is known as the Coast of Death!
