This camino is ideal if you want to smell the pilgrim’s life or if you have not worn enough kilometers after arriving in Santiago: the camino from Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre. The end of the world! In total you walk about 120 km in 4 stages.
Haven of peace
The Camino Finisterre is an oasis of peace after the relatively busy last kilometers to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. Just a few pilgrims continue their pilgrimage after arriving in Santiago, or start in Santiago. That is a pity, because the camino to Finisterre is truly a gem. This pilgrimage is easy, you will not encounter huge climbs or descents on the way. Nature is also beautiful. Especially green. After all, you are in Galicia. There are enough facilities en route and the route is well signposted. So you don’t have to be afraid to get lost. It will come as no surprise that almost all restaurants have seafood on the menu. Along the way you can enjoy a delicious paella with fresh shrimps or taste the famous ‘pulpo a gallega’ octopus.
Finally the sea in sight
And then, in the stage to Cee, the sea suddenly appears in front of you. We know from our own experience a moment to remember. Along the way you pass authentic villages, countless (old) granaries, deserted landscapes and vistas that you say OMG. And all this together, makes this pilgrim route highly recommended!
By the way, it is good to know that if you walk or cycle this, you are not eligible for a compostela. This is because you are not arriving in Santiago. Both in Finisterre and in Muxia you can find certificates that you can obtain on presentation of your pilgrim pass, and of course the stamps.
