O Camiño dos Faros. Popularly known as the Route of the Lighthouses de Galicia, it is a network of almost 200 kilometres of fascinating trails, which are divided into eight stages of about 25 kilometres each. They travel along the Costa da Morte from Malpica to Finisterre.

Although it is true that the route is designed to be done on foot or by mountain bike, we suggest you to discover this Route of the Lighthouses with our car, following the road closer to the coast. With the sea accompanying us, unparalleled views of impossible cliffs. Stops in these Galician fishing villages full of tradition, lighthouses that tell stories, beaches to arrive and never leave… In short 120 kilometers of wild nature, tradition and culture that starts in the beautiful port of Malpica and reaches the lighthouse at the end of the world.

Route two lighthouses: Itinerary

Malpica, 100% seafaring tradition

We start the Ruta dos Faros in Malpica, a fishing village that has been weathered by the beating of the waves against the breakwater of the port. A port that once served as a base for whaling and today is still in full operation. It will be in this first stop where we will enjoy the beach of Area Maior, the hermitage and the viewpoint of San Adrián. From here we will see the Sisargas Islands, home to the first of the lighthouses on our route since 1919. Before leaving, we will pass by the beach of Beo, stopping to see its cross, the beach of Seiruga and continue to Punta Nariga. Here we find the second lighthouse of this route, surrounded by rocks carved by the sea and the wind, creating a breathtaking and fascinating landscape.
