Imagine to do the walk very close to ocean, feel the sea breeze, enjoy the most galician cuisine, their monuments and their traditional "pazos". That is what you can discover in the Finisterre Routes, two different routes that goes along the "Costa da Morte" and gives you the possibility of discovering some of the most beautiful places of Galicia.
First, we present the "Route of the Lighthouses" (Ruta de los Faros) of the Camino de Santiago, an 8-stage trip in which you can get to know the most beautiful landscapes of Galicia, 200 kilometers that link Malpica with Finisterre enjoying its historic lighthouses, its magnificent beaches, dunes, fishing villages, estuaries, cliffs and magical coves. The route is divided into 8 stages, between 18 and 32 kilometers, with departures in Malpica, Niñóns, Ponteceso, Laxe, Arou, Camariñas, Muxía and Nemiña, ending in Finisterre. It is fully signposted and runs by road, dirt tracks and always very close to the beach. All you need is to organize time, bring water and comfortable shoes and be willing to live unique sensations.
And why walking to Finisterre? Finis (End - Terre (earth), means the world's end and The world’s end is located in a village 90 km from Santiago de Compostela, whose origins are lost in time. It was declared European Heritage Site in 2007. Nowadays, it has become the epilogue or extension of the Way of St. James. Since the Middle Ages, many pilgrims used to continue the route to this place, following the path marked by the Milky Way. We can assure you the view is going to take our your breath.
And if you still want to discover more of this beautiful land but you have less time (4 nights and 5 days), the second route that joins Santiago and Muxia also will provide you with beautiful landscapes, gastronomy and traditional architecture.
