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

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.

The Road: 

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...

No fountain! Chapel, picnic area, and a nice place to take a rest.

Chapel and fountain. Shortly beyond this point, you will catch your first glimpse of the Cabo Finisterre.

The Road: 

After the Capela de San Pedro the camino comes to a fork, with the yellow arrows taking you left and downhill. The option to the right follows a dead-end trail 50m to the Cruceiro de Armada, a point which marks the medieval pilgrim’s first glimpse of the sea.

Cee, with it's 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...

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...

0.50km → San Roque
Altitude:

0.70km → A Amarela
Altitude: 
115

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. 

The Road: 

The camino passes the hamlet of Amarela as it winds its way downhill, trying at every opportunity to avoid the main road until it arrives at Estorde.

The camino does not pass near the beach here, but it is certainly possible to make the small detour for a rest or a soak of the feet. If you go that way, pay close attention to the arrows out of town and DO NOT follow the road.

The Road: 

Be mindful not to follow the main road out of town, the camino follows a trail on the upper (your right) side of town and is much more comfortable walking.

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...
History: 

The most famous son of Finisterre is simultaneously its most obscure. Alexandre Campos Ramírez, also known as Alejandro Finisterre, was a poet and inventor born here in 1919. He was injured in the battle for Madrid during the onset of the Spanish Civil War and was evacuated to the hospital in...

Notice: 

The official certificate of completion, known as the Fisterrana, can be obtained at the Xunta albergue. You are advised to have all of your stamps in order, for they are on the lookout for anybody who might have taken the bus.

Fiesta: 

The biggest fiesta in Finisterre is Holy Week, when many thousands of Galicians descend on the village to take part in the celebrations and processions. If you plan to arrive during this time do book a room in advance. Nuestra Señora del Carmen is celebrated from the 8-10th of September.

The Road: 

TO MUXÍA: The route to Muxía has grown up a bit over the last five years, but services along the 29km stretch way remain scarce. Lires and Frixe both have bars, and Lires has a few guesthouses if you wish to split the walk into two days.

To find the way to Muxía, head...
