A little bit of History

Formerly the pilgrims didn't only go to visit the Apostle Saint James but also went to Finisterre or Fisterra, (which means End of the Earth) for the great symbolism that represented this fact. And it is on the beaches of Finisterre where the pilgrims gathered a shell or scallop before returning home, which they hung on their staff or in their clothes as a sign of having completed the pilgrimage. Therefore, a shell identifies the traveler as a pilgrim, and can be seen engraved and carved in so many monuments and churches where the roads run.

Location

This way starts from Santiago de Compostela and heads west to the Atlantic coast. All of it goes through the province of A Coruña.

The stages

Three stages secillas and not very long. The last stage, in which you arrive at Finisterre, is very beautiful, especially since you can finally see the sea and Cape Finisterre on the horizon. After reaching Finisterre we still have the last stage, only 3 km away, to contemplate a spectacular sunset next to the Cape lighthouse.

The orography

The orography is not complicated. The maximum level is approximately 400 meters and the minimum is at the beach level.



The best season

In summer there are usually enough pilgrims, but it is not too hot. In winter the climate can be very rainy, although not very cold.

Pilgrim hostels and other accomodations

The number of pilgrim hostels is increasing. There is a town with pilgrim hostel approximately every 6.4 km (July-2018), and its location is enough to make this route in 3 or 4 days without problems.

The climatology

The weather is rainy. As we get closer to the Atlantic coasts, the weather can change very quickly.
