Finisterre - Costa da Morte Day Tour from Santiago de Compostela
Reach the "World's End" & experience the "Coast of Death". The Camino to Finisterre pre-dates Christianity, as pagans would head to Fisterra (in Galician meaning the End of Land) on the Costa da Morte (Coast of Death - one of the most dangerous coast to sail) where they believed the sun died and the worlds of the dead and the living joined. When the Camino de Santiago became an important Christian pilgrimage, pilgrims started following this tradition and walking the 88 remaining kilometers to the Atlantic Ocean. Here, at the World's End, with the almost permanent mist and the fierce ocean, they would burn their clothes, pray and symbolically start a new purer life.
For those who do not have the time to walk 3 to 4 days into Finisterre from Santiago de Compostela, we organize scheduled or private day tours along this route towards Finisterre and Muxia. On this tour, you will discover: the bridge of Pontemaceira, the quaint fishing town of Muros, unique Ézaro which is the only place in Europe where a waterfall flows into the sea, the old town of Finisterre and its lighthouse at the end of the world, as well as Muxía and the Virxe da Barca (Virgin of the Boat) Sanctuary.
Only €40 per person!
