Where does the Camino de Santiago begin and where does it end?

Each Jacobean itinerary has its starting point in a different place. The French Way starts in Saint Jean Pied de Port (France), the Northern Way in Irun, the Primitive Way starts in Oviedo, the English Way starts in Ferrol. The Silver Route starts from Seville, the Central Portuguese Route from Lisbon and the Portuguese Coastal Route from Oporto.


The Camino de Santiago ends in Santiago de Compostela, with the obligatory visit to the Cathedral and the tomb of St. James the Apostle. But there is a Jacobean route in which Santiago is the beginning and not the goal, it is the Camino a Finisterre, whose goal is to reach the “End of the World”, located in the lighthouse of Finisterre.
