General Description: This is a fairly common extention of the routes to Santiago, an extention that ends at the Atlantic Ocean at Finisterre – Land’s End. 89 km from Santiago de Compostela to the lighthouse at Finisterre. Through Negreira, Cée and Concubión to the port of Finisterre and on to the lighthouse. In past centuries, pilgrims continued 29 km up the coast to the Santuario de Nuestra Señora de la Barca in Muxía, a further extension that is made easier by being waymarked in both directions.
Waymarking: The route is marked with yellow arrows as on the francés but also with concrete milestones which have a stylized blue and yellow shell symbol.
Terrain: Like the Camino francés in Galicia, there is considerable up and down crossing river drainages.
When to go: The route is passable year round except that November through the end of February is not recommended. Climate tables for Santiago de Compostela and A Coruña.
Accommodation: There are pilgrim-dedicated albergues in Negreira, Olveiroa, Cee and Corcubión and in Finisterre itself. In addition there is commercial lodging in the form of hotels, hostales, pensiones and casas rurales in almost every village.
