What To Expect

Ponte Maceira
Beautiful village in the vicinity of Santiago de Compostela. Its famous 14th century bridge over the Tambre river stands out. We will also see here an interesting set of mills of medieval origin and the town itself with its cobbled streets. All in the midst of an environment of surprising natural beauty.

25 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Mirador de As Paxareiras
From this viewpoint, on Mount Paxareiras, we will enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of the Costa da Morte, with Carnota beach at our feet, Cape Finisterre in the background and the immensity of the Atlantic before us.
Also in the viewpoint itself we will find the colorful and interesting natural sculptures of a local artist.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Fervenza de Ezaro
In the last stretch of the course of the Xallas River, it runs through the foothills of Monte Pindo, until it ends up plunging into the sea from about 40 meters high in what we know as Cascada del Ézaro. A unique show in Europe.

Faro de Fisterra
Cape Finisterre, or Fisterra, is the place where ancient Greeks and Romans placed the End of the World.
It is one of the most emblematic places in Galicia, which has given rise to all kinds of legends, in which religious, maritime and pagan elements are intertwined.

Many of those who venture into the Camino de Santiago decide to extend their path precisely to this place, always considered a magical and mysterious place, traveling the 98 kilometers that separate Santiago de Compostela from Finisterre.

From the surroundings of the Lighthouse of Fisterra we will observe impressive panoramic views of the Ría de Corcubión and the Carnota Coast, on which the granite complex of the O Pindo Mountains stands out.

40 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Fisterra
Famous fishing village.
In the town of Finisterre we will have free time to enjoy Galician gastronomy, visit the fishing port and explore its charming alleys

1 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Muxia
For many, the road and the experience extend to the town of Muxía, located a little further north of Finisterre, a spectacular place with an important cultural heritage

The history of the town of Muxía is linked to the Sanctuary of the Boat raised at the foot of the sea and the surrounding stones; the “Pedra de Abalar”, the “Pedra dos Cadrís” and the Piedra del Timón.

From the Sanctuary, a small path leads us to the summit of Monte Corpiño that offers magnificent views of the estuary and the Cabo Vilán, the beaches of Leis and Lago and Monte Facho.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Parish Church of San Martino de Ozon
We will visit the Giant Hórreo of San Martiño de Ozón. It is the oldest of the giant granaries of Galicia (15th century). Annexed is the Romanesque temple of San Martiño from the s. XII and a small monastery today converted into a pilgrims' hostel.

Bus tour to Finisterre
marymK5387HF, 26-09-2022
Our bus tour to Finisterre was well organised. Ran to time, had just about the correct number of stops at beautiful places. Ruben was an excellent guide.
Day to relax before coming home

The guide had a lovely sense of humor and spent time speaking with guests at the different stops. He offered more than just restaurant recommendations. We had to revise the itinerary to get us around a festival at one of the ports. We were traveling in a smaller bus than some of the other companies and managed to time it so we were there slightly before the other bus loads showed up. It was a lovely day.
Fantastic all-day excursion to see Galicia and Finisterre

We had a FABULOUS tour of the coast - Muxia, Maceira, Muros, Fisterra. Our guide, Paloma, was a Galician local who explained everything beautifully in Spanish and English, and our driver Monolo drove smoothly and safely in a very comfortable bus. We did not expect such a great journey - so glad we did it!!
Wonderful day trip

Lucky enough to have a beautiful day and clear skies. The amount of time at each stop was just enough. No pressure at all. It was nice to travel in a comfortable, well maintained bus. Tour guide described things we were about to see and then would tell us when the historical view or item, came into view.
Enjoyed the tour guide Christian.
Beautiful day in Galicia. Historic education.
