The first stage of the Camino to Finisterre and Muxía is relatively comfortable. It runs from Santiago de Compostela through beautiful rural landscapes, full of chestnut, pine and eucalyptus trees and before reaching Negreira the route will give us a pleasant surprise. In Ponte Maceira we will discover one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. Cross its glorious stone bridge.
Admire the passage of the Tambre river and enjoy the beautiful architecture of its houses will be a real treat for the senses.


We start our Way to Finisterre and Muxía from the very Plaza del Obradoiro in Santiago de Compostela.

and we follow the arrows that lead us down the Costa do Cristo and the Rúa das Hortas towards Negreira. We cross Calle Galeras and continue until we reach a large oak grove, the Carballeira de San Lourenzo. After a steep descent, we cross a stone bridge over the river and take a dirt track that leads us to Sarela de Abaixo, from where we can enjoy an excellent panoramic view of Santiago de Compostela.
We continue our way through forests of carballos, pines and eucalyptus, passing through small villages and urbanizations until we reach Quintans, where we have a bar.
We continue without complications until we reach the Mesón Alto do Vento, where we find a restaurant with a terrace, highly recommended for our first stop.

Leaving the restaurant, we go down the sidewalk and take a street on the right that takes us to the village of Ventosa.

We continue along the road until we reach Augapesada, where we turn left onto a cobbled street.
After passing a stone bridge we start a steep slope for 2
