CAMINO FINISTERRE TOURS
The Camino to Fisterra and Muxia is unique as it is the only one to start in Santiago de Compostela, but it can be easily walked in both directions (it is marked to follow from and to Santiago).
The most popular option is to start in Santiago and walk to Cape Fisterra, over 5 days, or continue all the way to the village of Muxia, which will take a full week in total.
If you are looking to walk to Santiago, you will have to start in Muxia, walk to Fisterra and then to Santiago in order to complete the 100kms required to obtain the Compostela certificate at the Pilgrims Office.
