Camino to Finisterre & Muxía Map 3
3.20km → Cabo Finisterre
Altitudine: 
25
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...
Storia: 

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...

Attenzione: 

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.

Festività: 

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.

Il cammino: 

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...

Lires is the few places between Finisterre and Muxía where you can expect to pick up supplies.  It also has a beach within 1.5km.
There are four Casa Rurals that offer accommodation, and at the time of writing all were bookable online.

Attenzione: 
Don´t forget to get a stamp here, which is available at any of the bars as well as the little rest stop near the church (signposted).
Il cammino: 

TO FINISTERRE NOTE: At the bottom of Lires, opposite the church, there are arrows painted in RED which indicated a ‘coastal’ option to Finisterre which turns right and follows the coast to rejoin the camino near Castrexe. This option adds 1.1km to the route but offers much...

There is a bar, but you have to deviate from the camino by a few hundred meters to get there.  The beds in town, at Casa Ceferinos, are not your typical pilgrim fare but they are quite nice....

The camino passes through three service-less villages on the way to Muxía, Guisamonde, Morquintián, and Xurarantes.

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...
