Where to start the route to Finisterre and Muxía?

From Santiago de Compostela

The great peculiarity of the Camino to Finisterre and Muxía is that unlike other routes, it does not lead pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela, but starts from the very square of Obradoiro to go to the legendary Costa da Morte.

It is for this reason that many of the pilgrims who come to the city of the Apostle, decide to extend their pilgrimage and complete the 4 or 5 stages that separate Compostela from Finisterre and Muxía. There are even those who, after visiting both final destinations of the Jacobean route, continue walking back to Santiago making an almost circular route.
