Fisterra Way

 

The end of the Way, km. 0

Itinerary

The relation of the ancient “Finisterrae” with the Way was established when the Apostle’s tomb was discovered. Different stories about the Santiago’s body transfer to Galicia mention the city of Dugium, located on Finisterre isthmus.

In Muxía there is a legend about the Virgin appearing and several traditions about the special stones in this place, which are supposed to have magic properties. 

This change is described in the Travel to the West of Domenico Laffy, on the 17th Century. 

We also need to mention that this Way is walked from Santiago towards Finisterre and not the other way around. Those who do it, use to burn their clothes as a symbolism of rebirth and purification.
