Day-trip to Finisterre and Costa da Morte
A journey through the most outstanding points of the Costa da Morte, which owes its name to the high number of shipwrecks and maritime accidents caused by its rough waters and dangerous cliffs. A place full of legends where the 0 km of the Pilgrim’s Way to Santiago is located.
Our first stop will be in the town of Muxía, where we will find the “Sanctuary of the Virgen de la Barca”, and the famous “Piedras del Milagro”, which symbolize the remains of the boat of the apostle Santiago with which he arrived in Muxía. It is a real spectacle to see how the waves break on the rocks.
The cape of Finisterre, the “old end of the world”. It is the KM 0 of the Way of Saint James and in it you will find your last step. The pilgrims burned their garments as a gesture of purification after carrying out the Way. A lighthouse full of legends, desires and promises that rest under the relaxing sound of its waves.
After visiting the cape we will go down to know this fishing village and its port, where we will be able to choose between its many restaurants and tascas, where to eat fresh fish and to taste a good menu.
Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful images of the Costa da Morte, these being the only waterfalls in Europe that flow into the sea.
Here we will see the second largest horreo in the world, these ancient constructions have been used for hundreds of years to store grain and other species.
