Overview

A mythical and symbolic Camino to the end of the world!

The Fisterra Camino is most faithful depiction of the historical cry of the pilgrim, who exclaimed “Ultreia!” (Still further!). And it really is further than the goal in Compostela — after having venerated the remains of the apostle St. James — when many pilgrims decide to discover the end of the world, and do not hesitate to overcome the sacrifices of the harsh days behind them to walk some more days.
Until the end of the Middle Ages, the “Costa da Morte” (“Death Coast”) was the furthest stronghold of land known, the place where pre-Roman peoples believed that souls ascended to heaven. A mythical and symbolic space that left the Roman conquerors open-mouthed when they saw the sun disappearing into the immense ocean. Since then, Cape Fisterra has magnetised every visitor in the same way.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Walk through a thousand years of history on the worlds’ grandest historical and religious trail, retracing the steps of countless pilgrims.
  • Explore the Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque architecture of Santiago de Compostela, classified by UNESCO as World Heritage.
  • Visit Finisterre the extention of the Way of St James from Santiago de Compostela to the ‘end of the Earth’, a mystical and symbolic place to complete your journey.
  • Discover the "Costa da Morte" (Coast of Death), this part of northern Spain was the furthest known land until explorers set sail in the Middle Ages.

After A Ponte Maceira take a wooded footpath next to the river and go up to A Chancela, and come to Negreira.
Leave Negreira by crossing the Barcala River. Cornado is the last town in the municipality of Negreira, which gives way to Mazaricos. The native vegetation and the beauty of the landscape preside over these first kilometres: gorse and cornfields, pine trees and eucalyptus … together with a genuine popular architecture evident in granaries like As Maroñas, and Romanesque churches such as Santa Mariña where the stage ends.
