How to reach Finisterre:

Most of the pilgrims reaching Santiago de Compostela from one of the many Caminos (yes: the well-known french way is not the only possible camino, have a look here), decide to continue the Camino until the peninsula of Cape-Finisterre (galician: Cabo-Fisterra), walking for about 70 kilometers more or simply taking one of the several busses from Santiago Bus Station (timetables here, average cost: 14 euros) to the port of Finisterre. Adding another journey-day, you can also visit Muxía, the other locality shown on the map here on the left. There would be eventually space for another post about it.

Spain - El Camino de Santiago de Compostela

El Camino de Santiago de Compostela is a magic journey. I thought I would do it just to check my bucket list, but after I finished it I was thinking how can I manage my life routine in order to be able to do it each year. I have a lot of reason for which I wish to go back on the road.
