Follow the ancient Finisterre Way from Santiago de Compostela to Cape Fisterra

While most of the historic Camino trails end in Santiago de Compostela, the Finisterre Way (Camino de Fisterra) begins there and makes its pilgrimage to the coastal town of Finisterre and Cape Fisterra, at one point believed to be the Edge of the known world.

The ancient Finisterre Way route predates the other Camino pilgrimages as it was a part of Roman and Celtic traditions. As you walk, you’ll understand why these cultures considered this location to be the end of the earth, which is how Finisterre got its name.

Enjoy the scenic beauty of the rural countryside, and the spectacular cliffs and beaches along the coast. Don’t miss the sunsets from the promenade in Cee and the lighthouse at Finisterre. This self-guided walking tour on the Finisterre Way in Spain will leave you with memories for a lifetime, so don’t miss this tour!
