Full description
The guided day tour to Finisterre, Muxía and the Coast of Death runs along the west side of Galicia and it has 7 visits, which are discovered in 9 hours. The bus tour will start at the time you choose from the tour start options available to you at the already stipulated starting point. The Finisterre and Costa da Morte tour from Santiago de Compostela will begin with a visit to the wonderful village of Pontemaceira which, day after day, sees how pilgrims pass by who are amazed by its visual appeal full of stone and with a natural environment out of a movie. Its river, its small waterfall and its bridge of Gothic origin will transport us back in time. After enjoying Pontemaceira, it is time for Muxía. There are many reasons why we love to visit this beautiful area. From the mysticism emanating from the Sanctuary of La Barca to the visual magic of Cabo Touriñán, the westernmost point of the province of La Coruña. Back to the bus and southwest direction. Finisterre has something you will never forget. A beautiful fishing town with great local products but, above all, with views that leave their mark. Its horizon, known as Finis Terrae in the ancient world, will be one of the images you can never get out of your head. The unmistakable Finisterre lighthouse, the closest to America, was built in 1853, it has witnessed shipwrecks and stories that you should know. The tour of Finisterre and Costa da Morte from Santiago de Compostela heads to the incredible Ézaro waterfall. Coming to the light of tourists with the cycling tour of Spain, this wonder will surprise you when you see its enormous waterfall that comes from the Xallas River. If this Finisterre excursion has something, it is that the history and secrets that our guides will tell you are complemented by some places of interest to understand all the Galician traditions. The Carnota granery will lead you to understand the reason for this peculiar but functional construction. This giant granery, endowed from the 18th century, is one of the main exponents of religious power of the moment. We will get on the bus to reach the last stop of this beautiful excursion through Finisterre and Costa da Morte from Santiago de Compostela, the beautiful fishing village of Muros that, day after day, sees tourists passing by enjoying its gastronomy. You can watch the unloading of fish or go to one of the stalls. Without a doubt, a wonderful place to end an excursion that you will not forget. We will return to the bus to end our tour that will take us back to the Galician capital. If you still have doubts about taking the excursion to Finisterre and Costa da Morte from Santiago de Compostela and need more details, we will be happy to help you.

I have been on many similar activities and tours, and the truth is that it is one of the most complete (if not the most complete). You arrive from the road and they not only take you to cool places like Muxía or the obligatory stop, Fisterra, but they stop you at a lot of places. The awesome guide. I would repeat with Rías Baixas if it weren't for the fact that I have to go back to Tenerife tomorrow again (apparently there is a boat with seafood and drinks included). BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!

Good places to visit, but little time to visit them. We were 3 buses together from different companies, they should agree not to coincide all at the same time in the same place. In addition, it is necessary to emphasize the current sanitary measures inside the bus.
