We did the Camino Frances and decided to keep on going to Finisterre and it was amazing! To me, getting to the Ocean felt like a greater accomplishment than just getting to Santiago, it might be because of the fact that I'm not that religious and that getting to the ocean really felt like getting to the end of the...

This was an amazing trail. The second day was particularly tough but worth it for the third day and the walk out to the ocean. I highly recommend this walk.

Well worth seeing and the views of the cliffs and sea are breathtaking. There is also a small picnic area where the views can be enjoyed

We drove to this landmark on a very hot day. It is a beautiful place. It is believed to be the furthest most westerly point in Spain - or the end of the country / world. Once there you can take a trip around the "museum" (I say this lightly because it is mostly written history) to read up on... More

Many pilgrims chose to take the bus from Santiago to Finisterre but in my experience this was the best part of the camino. Walking to the sea is something special, for me anyway, and there is some really nice scenery on this walk. Some of the stages are a little long but there are opportunities to split them. In and...

A famously lighthouse awaits you here, we travelled along the coast stopping off at the coast of death, where hms serpent sank and the British sailors are buried in a graveyard by the sea. Surrounded by sea rocks and heathers. Finisterre was believed to be the end of the world. Fascinating place to be

My family and I went on a day trip with Gallaecia Tours to Finisterre and we had a lovely time. The trip was a 1 day trip by mini bus and this was one of the stop offs along with an exploration of the coastline. We would have loved to have walked this part of the trail but with time... More

4 days of walking and 90km complete from Santiago to Finisterre. Lovely calm paths, not too many people, good accomodation and very varied scenery. It was not easy and hard enough to make the arrival at the lighhouse feel like a real journeys end. Impossible to get lost as very well marked. Felt off the beaten track but not in... More

Whether you are on a pilgrimage of any kind or a long trip of just a short time tourist, Cape Finisterre will add magic to your memories. We rode our motorbike from Cape Town, South Africa to Cape Finisterre and it felt like a true pilgrimage. The famed Finisterre (from the latin End of the World), stands up to its... More

We went to Cape Finisterre one afternoon during our holiday in August with the intention to come back in the evening to watch the sunset. Although it is a nice place, for my taste it was by far too touristy. Hords of people everywhere, busloads of them. We decided not to go and and see the sunset because we were... More
