Camino Finisterre (Finisterre Muxia Circuit)

This guidebook describes the only camino that departs from Santiago. However, in recent years it has been recognised for a Compostela when walked in reverse from Finisterre/Muxía back to Santiago as the route provides the minimum distance required. For those who have already walked to Santiago it provides an opportunity to integrate that earlier experience and a wonderful introduction to Galicia for everyone – novitiate or veteran.
