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. 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, 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 (Km 0) of the Camino de Santiago is located. Here, eat lunch and get 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. On the way back to Santiago, explore one of the largest barns on the Costa da Morte. The “Hórreo” of San Martiño de Ozón dates from the 16th century and is located next to a 12th-century Romanesque church and a small monastery now converted into a hostel for pilgrims.

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!

Complete excursion. Visiting many beautiful places. Information without boring, precise and clear, but not heavy. The whole journey is very pleasant. Ana very pleasant and cordial and the places visited very well distributed in time, she gives for everything. The only thing is that they recommend a restaurant for lunch in Fisterra and it is the most expensive by far. When we saw the menu we got up and went to another, with the same quality and half the price.

A beautiful trip in which I saw places that alone I would not have been able to visit. The guide Rubens was great, he explained many things to us about the places we visited, all in both English and Spanish and also spoke a little Italian. I highly recommend taking this tour.
