Full description
Take a trip along the Costa da Morte (Coast of Death) on a full-day journey from Santiago de Compostela. This excursion is a combination of breathtaking landscapes, local gastronomy, authentic village life, and historical immersion.

The first stop is Muros, an old fishing town and harbor. Its old town has been restored and the historical center has been conserved, making it a beautiful and authentic look into the past.

Continue to Ézaro, located in the extreme south. The waterfall there is particularly unique, as it is among only 7 waterfalls in Europe that flow into the ocean or sea.

Afterward, make your way to Cape Finisterre, a rock-bound peninsula at the end of the ancient world. Head to the local lighthouse located on the mountain of Monte Facho, and enjoy the views out over the water. You will also learn more about how shipwrecks on the rocks gave this stretch of coastline its name.

Stop for lunch, and then make your way to Muxía. This village, known as ground zero of the Prestige oil spill disaster in 2002, is known for its rocks and water. It is also a short drive from the former Benedictine monastery that is now the Church of San Xulián de Moraime.
