1Ponte MaceiraBeautiful village in the vicinity of Santiago de Compostela. Its famous 14th century bridge over the Tambre River stands out.

5Fisterra TownFamous fishing village. In the town of Finisterre we will have free time to enjoy Galician cuisine, visit the fishing port and walk its charming streets
6MuxíaFor many, the Way and experience extends from Santiago de Compostela to the town of Muxía, located a little further north of finisterre. A spectacular place with an important cultural heritage The Sanctuary of the Barca built at the foot of the sea and the stones of its surroundings; the "Pedra de Abalar", the "Pedra dos Cadrís" and the “Pedra do Temón”. From the Sanctuary, a small path leads us to the summit of Mount Corpiño that offers us magnificent views of the estuary and Cape Vilán, the beaches of Leis and Lago and Mount Facho.
In this tour of the “Costa da Morte” the landscape is the real protagonist. It is a trip to a unique and special charming area. To a land of mystery, legends and myths.
Our first stop will be in Ponte Maceira, a small town near Santiago de Compostela and a must for pilgrims who continue their journey towards the “end of the World.” It is a charming village where the protagonist is the 14th century bridge over the Tambre River. An enclave that surprises with the natural beauty of the environment as well as a beautiful set of mediaeval mills.
We return to our way and head towards the coast. We will arrive at Muros, a beautiful fishing village where we can enjoy a walk through the historic area or through the port of the town. We will admire from this small town the incomparable views of the estuary.
Continuing the road along the coast a few kilometres away, between the ocean and Mount Pindo, we will find the Ézaro waterfall. In this place we will see how the Xallas River falls into the sea forming this waterfall. The Ézaro waterfall is probably the most famous in Galicia.
Our next destination is Cape Fisterra (Finisterre). End of the world for Romans and Greeks as well as the border between the world of the living and the dead for Celtic cultures. There we will visit what was believed to be the westernmost point in Europe, the Lighthouse and the zero kilometre (Km 0) of the Camino de Santiago.
Then we will go down to the town of Fisterra where we will stop for lunch and have free time to walk through the town and its fishing port.
The next stop of our tour will be Muxía, the other possible end of this continuation of the Camino de Santiago. We will find here with a beautiful Sanctuary at the foot of the Atlantic and with three stones considered sacred by the Galicians since always (we will tell you why).
And after a day full of beautiful and incredible landscapes, we then returned to Santiago de Compostela
