Full description

Begin the tour with a visit to Ponte Maceira, a charming little town that is an obligatory stop for pilgrims who travel on their journey towards the “end of the world”. Admire its 14th-century bridge over the Tambre river and see the picturesque sets of medieval mills. Travel along the beautiful coast of the Muros e Noia estuary to the historic town of Muros. Stop here for a short visit to admire your surroundings.

Next, head towards the coast and enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the coast of Carnota. Drive by the beautiful coastal landmarks of Lira, Carnota Beach, Boca do Río, Mount Pindo and Cape Fisterra. After, arrive at Ézaro, where the river Xallas falls into the sea forming a waterfall, the Ézaro waterfall, is probably the most famous in Galicia and unique in Continental Europe. Continue to Cape Fisterra (Finisterre) once believed to be the westernmost point in Europe, where the lighthouse and kilometer zero of the Camino de Santiago is located. Here, eat lunch and take free time to walk around the town and its fishing port. Resume the itinerary and head to Muxia where you will be met here with a beautiful Sanctuary at the foot of the Atlantic and with three stones considered sacred by the Galicians.

What a good day trip this turned out to be. The Guide, Oscar was brilliant. His commentary was knowledgeable and funny, able to keep everyone entertaoned and engaged. The driver was very good! The stops were long enough and everyone kept to the time schedule. Lunch in Muxia was delicious and the discount voucher very welcome. The coach was clean and comfortable. Glad I went! Well worth it. Thanks for a great trip!

This was an excellent tour and our tour guide Oscar was friendly, professional and very informative about the history of the people a d culture. It’s a long day but worth all the walking. Pray for a clear day to see the magnificent views at Finisterre and Muxia.
