Introduction:

This tour starts in the Pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela, which to most people is the end of the Camino (Way), but in reality many years before Santiago even existed another Camino continued all the way to Finisterre (Lands End). The Celtic tribes of the area use to follow the stars to Finisterre, which to them was the end of the Earth.

Leaving Santiago we will follow along the rugged coastline known as the Costa da Morte (Coast of Death) due to all the ship wreck along the shore during the years in bad weather conditions. We will pass through small villages and stop to admire the views until reaching the End of the way FINISTERRE!
