Full description
Begin the tour with a visit to Ponte Maceira, a charming little town that is an obligatory stop for pilgrims who travel on their journey towards the “end of the world”. Admire its 14th-century bridge over the Tambre river and see the picturesque sets of medieval mills. Next, head towards the coast and enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the coast of Carnota. Drive by the beautiful coastal landmarks of Lira, Carnota Beach, Boca do Río, Mount Pindo, and Cape Fisterra. After, arrive at Ézaro, where the river Xallas falls into the sea forming a waterfall, the Ézaro waterfall, probably the most famous in Galicia and unique in Continental Europe. Continue to Cape Fisterra (Finisterre) once believed to be the westernmost point in Europe, where the lighthouse and kilometer zero (Km 0) of the Camino de Santiago is located. Here, eat lunch and get free time to walk around the town and its fishing port. Resume the itinerary and head to Muxia where you will be met here with a beautiful Sanctuary at the foot of the Atlantic and with three stones considered sacred by the Galicians. On the way back to Santiago, explore one of the largest barns on the Costa da Morte. The “Hórreo” of San Martiño de Ozón dates from the 16th century and is located next to a 12th-century Romanesque church and a small monastery now converted into a hostel for pilgrims.

The walk is fine, you can see several points of interest in a short period of time that otherwise you will also miss them. The Guide, Ana, who accompanied us was at all times attentive to our questions and with kindness she taught us things that arose at the time of the trip

The excursion is really great, it has many stops that make you enjoy the wonderful places, it also gives enough time to see them, each stop is half an hour, except for the food in Finisterre which is two hours. Finally, about seven stops are made, four until reaching Finisterre and three when going up to Santiago. I liked everything in general, it is very well organized, but if I have any complaint about something, it is that passengers should be insisted more on putting on the mask during the trip inside the bus, since many remove it and others carry it by under the nose, basically the same. I think that in the situation we find ourselves in, it is of great importance to take care of ourselves, we know that it is everyone's responsibility, but sometimes you have to treat people like children and give directions so that the rules are followed.
