Most of this route is linked to the Camino de Santiago towards the end of the earth, Finisterre, where since time immemorial, pilgrims have been arriving and falling in love with this place.
You will leave Santiago towards a hidden gem on the Finisterre road, Pontemaceira. This bridge of Roman origin and currently medieval is undoubtedly a stop that you will love. Walking where the pilgrims go daily, and above all seeing the river, its waterfall and the bridge will make it remain etched in your retina.
Leaving Pontemaceira, you will go to Muxía specifically, to the Sanctuary of the Virgen de la Barca, one of the obligatory stops on this pilgrimage route and for all Galicians. In this place, you will enjoy the guide's explanations about the path, the sanctuary, the Prestige as well as the stones and their special powers, and after this stop, head to Finisterre.
The next stop will be the Finisterre Lighthouse, a place of great symbolism for pilgrims, Romans and Celts, who considered this magical place. Without a doubt it will be for you too, because the views from its cape, the tranquility of its waters and the pilgrim atmosphere will remain in your mind.
Lunchtime is approaching, and we will stop in the town of Finisterre, to taste the best of the local gastronomy. Do not hesitate to ask our guide for advice in the best way.
After the meal you will have 2 more stops. The first stop will be the Ézaro Waterfall, a unique waterfall in Europe, and not only for its beauty, but also for its impressive mouth, in a special enclave such as the Ría de Corcubión.
As a last stop, the Hórreo de Carnota, a representative construction of Galicia, and one of the largest granaries in the world. You will be able to know its history and the reason for its large size.
We will return through the Ría de Muros, touring a part of the Galician coast and undoubtedly enjoying the pilgrim world, the traditions of Galicia and its estuaries, to arrive in Santiago at the meeting point and thus complete a perfect day.
