The albergue in Hospital is a bit diffucult to get to, and there are not too many signs to show the way. To get there turn right onto the main road and follow it downhill, turning left into the hamlet at the first opportunity. The albergue is at the bottom part of the village, on the last road...

Notice: 
If you are continuing to Finisterre then the bar here is the last place to stock up on water or grab a sandwich. There is a fountain between here and Cee but very little else.

The Great Divide

Shortly after the roadside bar beyond Hospital, in the middle of a large roundabout, is a double mojón indicating the choice between Finsterre and Muxía.

TO FINISTERRE: From the roundabout with the twin markers, take the paved road to the left and alongside the massive factory. The camino follows the road for 300m before leaving it to join a trail on your right.
From this point, all the way to the first building in Cee, the camino remains well isolated from the road and any form of development beyond the two chapels mentioned below.

TO MUXÍA: From the roundabout with the twin markers, take the paved road to the right and keep to the left-hand side. The stretch of road ahead is the longest part that the camino is on the road and it is easy to zone out and miss the turn to the left. The same applies to the many times the camino rejoins and leaves the road. Just remember that you are seldom on the road for more than 50m.

The camino passes through the hamlet of As Carizas as it descends to Dumbría. The modern and colorful Municipal Albergue is the first building you come to.

Dumbría, as small as it is, is the only town along the way to Muxía that has a shop to pick up the staples. There are a few restaurants in town as well.
The Road: 
The camino between Dumbría and Trasufe requires you to cross the busy AC-552 road, nothing too major be it is in a bend where drivers can easily overlook a crossing pilgrim.

There is a donative based cafe here located adjacent to one of the longest horréos in the area. If that is not your speed, there is also a roadside bar a short way off the camino that is easy to find if you follow the signs.
The Road: 
The way to Vilar de Sobremonte and beyond is a fairly steep climb, but not far beyond the top you are rewarded with the first view of the sea.

The Road: 
The signage here is a bit misleading, stick to the smaller road downhill and avoid the road which goes uphill. Both bring you to Moraime but the smaller road is the safer of the two.

Site of the former Monasterio de Moraime, a Benedictine affair in the early 12th century. These days it is only a church dedicated to San Xulián. The albergue is in an extremely well restored building but lacks proper cooking facilities and there are no restaurants in the vicinity.

The Road: 

Ahead is the last real ascent, up to the Capela de San Roque, and from there it is a much needed descent through Chorente and then the beaches at the edge of Muxía.

While Finisterre can be seen as a popular hippy destination, Muxiá skips the show and gets straight to relaxing. Some say it is too relaxed and indeed you might be uncomfortable being able to sit for hours on the massive stones that surround the Santuario da Virxe da Barca at the far end of the...
