Trip to Fisterra and Muxía
Full day trip in a Costa da Morte
Departure from Santiago at 09:00 am.
You’ll visit the baroque shrine of Nosa Señora da Barca, a place full of legends and very ancient as its first construction dates from the 11th century. Taking a stroll around the sanctuary you’ll come across a Pedra de Abalar, a huge oscillating stone hold on only two points that can be moved back and forth as a sledge. You’ll be impressed with the beauty of this place and the force of the sea crashing over the rocks.
Then you’ll go to Fisterra. Once there you’ll see the lighthouse, cape Finisterre and the cross of the end of the way that pilgrims travelling to Santiago dream to reach as it’s considered the end of the world and the best place to conclude their trip.
FERVENZA DO EZARO (CORCUBIÓN)
You’ll appreciate river Xallas estuary and its impressive Ézaro waterfall, the only river in South Europe flowing into the sea in a waterfall.
Take a walk around this town where you’ll find one of the biggest raised granary in Galicia with a length of 34,76 meters and 1,90 meters wide. You’ll continue till Areal beach considered as the longest beach in Galicia with a length of 7 kms. It has a swamp and dunes area and provides shelter to a wide variety of migratory birds.
Last stop in a Costa da Morte, you’ll explore Muros town, one of the best-preserved villages of medieval origin in Galicia. A truly historical and seafaring ensemble you’ll discover walking through its old quarter and cobblestone streets with colonnades facing the sea.
Return to Santiago about 7 pm.
