1.40km → Ponte Sarela
Altitude: 
250

The camino to Finisterre and Muxía is often called the epilogue to the longer trails leading into Santiago. It is a fitting description for the 3-5 day journey; many pilgrims are moved to find an ending to the ending of their camino.

Finisterre as a destination for pilgrim actually...

Notice: 
Ein Wort der Vorsicht in Bezug auf die Unterkunft: Wenn Sie in der Hauptsaison ankommen, sollten Sie im Voraus reservieren. Es entstanden zwar viele neue Herbergen, aber die Zahl der PilgerInnen übersteigt in der Hochsaison immer noch die Kapazität.
Fiesta: 

The Feast day of Saint James is celebrated with a full week of music and dance, with a fireworks display in the Plaza Obradoiro on the evening of the 24th of July. The best views can be had from Obradoiro, or from Alameda park.

The Road: 

The start of the camino to Finisterre is poorly marked, and the fading yellow arrows are hard to find. Fortunately, the way is easy to describe and is very brief; you will be in the forest in less than 1km. 

Facing the Parador (with the Cathedral to your right) exit the square along the...

Heavy traffic here. 

Notice: 
Pay attention here. Although the route is well marked, it is still quite common for pilgrims to keep on following the road. If that happens to you, there is no need to retrace your steps. Keep on going to the next road (recognizable for the large stone wall) and turn right, followed by the next...
The Road: 

Turn right at the bus stop / Hórreo.

1.70km → Alto do Vento

When you arrive at the main road of Quintáns, the camino turns left and then immediately right again... watch out for the arrows.
At the same intersection there is a bar on your right.

There is a bar where the camino emerges into town.
The albergue is about half way through town and a bit (400-500m) off the camino.

The Road: 

The camino crisscrosses the main road and follows safer side streets. Keep an eye out for yellow arrows near a small bus stop that takes you to the right. If you miss it and walk too far, stay on the road and keep an eye out for a yellow arrow that will take you left. If you miss that one, just...

The Road: 

The road from Ventosa to Aguapesada is straight and along the road. Beyond Aguapesada, it follows a quiet track and road up and into the forest. The climb here is fairly steep. The towns between here and Ponte Maceira are of little note, and there is only one bar directly along this stretch. You...

There is a bar in O Reino, which technically is a bit off of the camino to your left. Useful if the bar in Trasmonte was closed or if you prefer taking the path less traveled.

The highlight of Ponte Maceira is the bridge over the Río Tabmre.  If not that, then the río itself.  For legal reasons I cannot advise you to swim in the river, but I can tell you that if you waited until the late afternoon to do so you would not be alone.  I can also tell you it is quite...

History: 

The heavily disputed legend of the translatio tells us that it was here that the disciples of Santiago, fleeing their Roman captors, were aided by divine intervention. Upon crossing the bridge the center span gave away, stranding the Romans on the other side. This legend, which some...

Notice: 
The one bar/restaurant in town is closed every Wednesday.
The Road: 

Cross over the bridge and follow the road out of town. As is common in these parts, the camino will continue to parallel the main road, crossing and then crossing back through the village of Barca. It feels un-necessary but it keeps you away from the traffic. Negreira is the next city of note...

History: 

“Because I am not inscribed from Noya but from Negreira, where I was born. And from Negreira, which is up the river Tambre, they take you for the army.” - a soldier to his corporal, excerpt from ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ by Ernest Hemingway.

Hemingway lived for a short time in...

The Road: 

The camino leaves Negreira near the municipal albergue on the West side of town. If you stayed in that albergue, go back towards town a short distance and follow the signs to the church. If you are an early morning (in the dark) walker, do yourself a favor and scout the route the night before....

There may or may not be a bar open in Zas, it is also a shop for basic necessities but does not do much to advertise.  It is on your left and there are stacks of empty bottles to give it away.

The Road: 

You enter Zas along the road, but leave it at the bar mentioned above. The town is small, and you will very quickly find that the camino follows a nice country trail all the way to O Rapote.
