Santiago de Compostela to Finistere

Guided or Self Guided Tour - 8 Days / 7 Nights

Whereas Santiago de Compostela is the final destination for most pilgrims on The Way Of St James, many people choose to continue to the westernmost coast of Spain at Cape Finisterre to dip their toes into the Atlantic Ocean. This particular area is known as the "Coast of Death" and was at one time considered to be the edge of the world! This quiet route crosses Roman bridges, ancient villages, stunning coastal paths and mountain scenery.
