Journey from Santiago to the end of the world, walking until you can’t walk any further.
For some, arriving in Santiago de Compostela isn’t the final goal of their pilgrimage. Walking up to the cathedral is certainly an emotional experience, but there’s something incredibly special about walking the Camino Finisterre to ‘the end of the world’ by the Atlantic Ocean. Though the origin of this final section is considered unknown, Finisterre has been renowned as a spiritually important place for the Romans, sailors and pilgrims for well over a thousand years. These days, the additional 100 or so kilometres offer an opportunity to those who want to ‘keep on walking’, with the added benefit of finishing by Finisterre’s clifftop lighthouse as the sun sets over the Atlantic Ocean. Once you’ve walked to Finisterre, you may walk no further. (Until your next Camino – after all you can never stop at one!)
