Stage 4: Camariñas-Muxía

The fourth stage of the Lighthouse Way is an exciting stretch that connects two of the most emblematic destinations on the Galician coast: Camariñas and Muxía. This stretch offers pilgrims a unique coastal experience, with trails winding along steep cliffs, pristine beaches and stunning seascapes. The route also provides the opportunity to reflect on places steeped in history and spirituality.
