Camino Finisterre 2016

Santiago de Compostela to Muxia via Finisterre

From the 1st until the 8th of September 2016, I traveled to Spain to walk my shortest Camino yet. It would take me from Santiago to the west coast, the edge of the world. I had set aside 5 days of walking and had hoped to walk 120 kilometres. The Camino Finisterre is seen by many as an extension to the longer Camino Frances and watching the sun set by the sea can be a better way to say goodbye to your Camino pals. I met some amazing people, from all parts of the world. I wrote about my times and the people I met. The links below will take you to the relevant posts and pictures.

General information about the Camino Finisterre:

The Confraternity of Saint James -Santiago to Finisterre / Muxia. A guidebook is also included. – Information, a blog and great pictures.
American Pilgrims of the Camino – A brief outline of waymarking, terrain, links and accomodation.
Eroski – Great information about the terrain, albergues and distances between towns. – Details of terrain and accomodation. A favourite of mine.

    1. While I am glad Spain don’t celebrate “Cinco de Mayo” like Mexico, The 4th of May is a public holiday in Spain. Many Spanish choose to walk a few days of the Camino but I don’t think it should be too much of a problem.
