Santiago - Finisterre/Muxia

Finisterre/Muxia Self-Guided

Since the moment the tomb of the apostle Saint James was discovered in the 9th century, many pilgrims have decided to extend their journey to the coastline of Finisterre, which in those days was considered the westernmost point in Europe, as the final stage of an itinerary marked in the sky by the Milky Way. You will be able to obtain 'La Fisterrá' which is the accreditation for having done the pilgrimage until the 'End of the World'.


If you wish, you can end your tour in Finisterre or you can continue your journey until you reach the beautiful town of Muxia.
