NOTE: If you are continuing to Finisterre then the bar here is the last place to stock up on food and water for some distance.

New albergue in 2015.

There is a fountain between here and Cee but very little else.

◁ to Finisterre or ▷ to Muxía

Shortly after the roadside bar beyond Hospital, on a roundabout, is a double mojón indicating the choice between Finsterre and Muxia.

The distance to Muxia from this point is 24km and is only marked in this direction.

Capela de San Pedro Mártir

Chapel and fountain.

Shortly beyond this point you will catch your first glimpse of the Cabo Finisterre.

The camino leaves this high plateau quite dramatically via a steep descent into Cee. Very steep. It starts off rocky but quickly turns into an asphalted road for the majority of the descent. When you get to the bottom, the first albergue (O Bordón) is on your left. The camino follows the road into Cee but has a very confusing set of arrows through town. They have been painted and painted over by competing albergues. No matter which way you choose you will get through town, but the shortest distance follows closest to the beach.

The town opposite Cee is Corcubion.

Cee, with its crescent beach, is the first place that the camino arrives at the Atlantic coast. It has every service you might need, including a full hospital, plenty of inexpensive accommodation, and a small shopping center. There is as well a bus terminal with service to Finisterre (don't even...

Be mindful of the arrows which will cause you to bear right shortly after the road begins to ascend. The camino does NOT continue along the road, but rather shortcuts its way over the hills behind Corcubión. If you lose the arrows, proceed to the Church of San Marcos. From there, and with the...

More of a picnic area than anything else, San Roque is set in the curve of the disused former roadway that wound it's way over the hill. Good for a rest, and home of a very friendly, thought late to open, albergue.

Finisterre is the end of the world, and for anybody walking west, the beginning of the end. From the city center only 3km remain to the Cabo (lighthouse and restaurant). On the other hand, 31km remain for anyone wishing to turn North and continue to Muxía. Quite a few albergues have cropped up...

Cabo Finisterre

Approximately 3km from the center of Finisterre, this is the last place that you could hope to walk to without changing directions. The pilgrimage to the cape has a history which long predates that of Santiago.

It can be a busy place, and the number of vendors there seems to grow with every passing year, but a careful climb down to a suitable lookout point will provide you with a peaceful enough place for you to contemplate your next move.

While there you may notice that pilgrims have claimed a small corner which serves as the final resting place for boots and other burnable items. While technically discouraged (and prohibited) by the authorities, the tradition persists.
