SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA – FISTERRA – A CORUÑA
We begin our journey accompanied at all times by an official Galicia guide who is expecting us to take us on this experience full of tales and legends of Galician lands.
We begin the route in Santiago de Compostela and journey towards the End of the World. We enjoy views of each of the towns that the jagged coastal road enters and that takes us through Noia, Muros, Carnota, with its huge stone granary that well deserves to be photographed, and having caught a glimpse of the Monte Pindo we arrive in Ézaro, where another beautiful image awaits us at the mouth of the river Xallas on the Atlantic Ocean. Now we just need to pass through Cee and Corcubión to get to Fisterra, where we enjoy the seafaring and pilgrim atmosphere of its port. We visit the lighthouse, located at the end of the cape, which in ancient times was believed to be the end of the known world. Lunch at a restaurant is optional. In the afternoon we visit Vimianzo, with its castle, where a “live” crafts exhibit shows us traditional trades such as the pottery from Buño and the lace from Camariñas. Before saying farewell to the Costa da Morte, we visit the Dolmen of Dombate, a well preserved and very interesting example of a Megalithic construction in Galicia.
With a bit of luck we arrive in A Coruña just in time to catch a glimpse of the sun setting by the Tower of Hercules.
