"In each of us dwells a wanderer, a gypsy, a pilgrim. What matters most on your journey is how deeply you see, how attentively you hear, how richly the encounters are felt in your heart." ~ Phil Coustineau, from his book, "The Art of Pilgrimage."
Camino Finisterre Ebook ~ New and updated in November of 2018, including all the recent route changes! We just re-walked this Camino and our eBook is full of great, new advice for the pilgrimage traveler! It even includes the northern route to Muxía!
This is our journey on the northern alternative for day three on the Camino Finisterre to Muxía.
Muxía, Spain is a seaside spiritual site that shouldn't be missed at the end of your pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago. It is a most sacred place, rife with legend, natural beauty and a unique and intimate ambiance.
Extending your Camino Finisterre to Muxía, the second, medieval "End of the World," is a rewarding and intense experience, especially if you are seeking more Presence in an intimate place.
The end of your Camiño Fisterra journey is not the town of Finisterre but four more kilometers from the Baixar Cross to the Cape. If you made it here from Santiago in three days, another day may be needed to go the final distance to this medieval End of the World.
Day three on the Camino to Finisterre is a rewarding and lovely challenge, a most joyous walk with amazing views as you approach the Costa da Morte. This day's adventure will take you all the way from Olveiroa to the cross in Finisterre.
Day two on the Camino to Finisterre is a strenuous one with two significant climbs. It is a joyous day, filled with many open, high views of the Galician countryside, more enchanted forests, many old stone horreos, and lovely stone cafés and albergues to tempt you to linger.
Day One on the Camino to Finisterre, after leaving Santiago de Compostela, is a beautiful Camino through an enchanted forest, medieval towns and gorgeous countryside.
The Camino Finisterre, a lovely extension to your Camino de Santiago, takes only an additional three to four days, to complete the pilgrimage to the medieval "end of the world."
The Camino Inglés Ebook is now available as a PDF download.
Our day eight on the Camino Inglés felt more difficult than perhaps it should have, due to the fact that there are not many attractive features on this day and there is some significant climbing that has to be done.
Our day seven on the Camino Inglés was to be our longest thus far.
Our day six on the Camino Inglés was short, yet difficult, as the relentless hill-climbing continued. At least the Way here was rural, mostly shaded, and on quiet forest lanes for most of the day.
On our day five of the Camino Inglés, cracks were starting to show in our spirits and bodies. It is yet another day of serious climbing, this time with a climb at the end of the day, into Presedo. We lifted one another by taking frequent rest stops and water breaks.
Our day four on the Camino Inglés was another trip through the lovely Galician countryside, starting from sea level in Miño, climbing steeply, then ending at sea level in Betanzos

Our recommendation for the best trekking pole. Carbon fiber construction (not aluminum) makes them ultra lightweight. Hide your poles in your pack from potential thieves , before you get to your albergue! (See more of our gear recommendations!)
