Santiago de Compostela can be the final stage of the Camino de Santiago, or the beginning of a new route towards the sea. The Finisterre Way, or Camino de Finisterre (known as “Fisterra” in Galician language) is much more than a simple prolongation of the Camino de Santiago, as this route comes from the Roman and Celtic tradition. During these periods, Finisterre was considered to be the End of the World. In fact, this is the origin of the term: Finis (end) terre (world).
This route is really well marked, but one of the stages is quite long. That is a why a minimum level of fitness is required. If you want to split this walking day in two, please do not hesitate to let us know, we can adapt the itinerary.
Once in Finisterre, you can request your Pilgrim Certificate, that is called “Finisterrana”. You can even do the route in reverse, ending in Santiago de Compostela instead. Do not hesitate to contact us for advice!
