Camino Finisterre & Muxia

Join your walking coach on a pilgrimage to the Costa da Morte, the wildest part of the Galician coast.

This particular Camino is the only pilgrimage route that actually starts in Santiago de Compostela. You have the choice of either walking for 5 days to Finisterre or 7 days to Muxia.

We will meet in Santiago de Compostela. From there the walk heads towards the ocean, ending your Camino at the westernmost point of Galicia, Finisterre; called in Latin “Finis Terrae”, the end of the world. The Romans believed that this was also a new beginning; the sun sinking into the Atlantic Ocean symbolising renewal and rebirth. At this point, pilgrims burned their clothes – current pilgrims gather to celebrate their success and life. 

You can finish here or extend your journey by taking the beautiful route to Muxia. 

There is an excellent bus service returning to Santiago de Compostela from both Finisterre and Muxia. 

What does your journey look like?

We set off in a northerly direction from the Plaza Obradoiro by the beautiful cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. We walk through the shady eucalyptus forests of the Galician countryside, passing several Galician villages. 

Once we have left Oliveira, perched on the high moorland, you gain your first glimpse of the ocean. Ascending and descending, through beautiful forests you reach the coastline and Finisterre step by step.

After recovering and enjoying the afterglow, the first thing you do is pick up your Fisterrana. Then, leaving your backpack, you walk the final 3.2 kilometres to the Cabo Finisterre, into the sunset and a new beginning. 

You can finish in Finisterre, but that need not be the end of your journey. 

If you wish you can then extend your pilgrimage route with 2 walking days from Finisterre to Muxia. By contrast with the first 5 days, this route follows the coast, along beautiful sandy beaches, dunes and idyllic villages, ending at the church of Virxe da Barca at the base of the cliffs.
