Finisterre/Muxia Way, 6 days/5 nights or 8 days/7 night

The shortest Camino to watch the sunset at the ‘End of the World’.

400.00 €

The Finisterre Way is the only one that starts in Santiago. This Camino crosses quiet villages, remote farmland and unspoiled landscapes, finally reaching the sea cliffs of the westernmost point in Spain, at Cape Finisterre. This beautiful region of Galicia is known as the “Coast of Death” and Fisterra (Finis Terrae) was once considered to be the end of the world. The route follows the stunning craggy coastline of Atlantic Galicia to the fishing village of Muxia.

*This will allow you to claim your “Fisterrana” pilgrim certificate in Fisterra and a ”Muxiana” pilgrim certificate (similar to the “Compostela” but issued by the local governments of Finisterre and Muxia).
