Full description
You’ll depart Santiago de Compostela at 9:15 AM by bus for a 9-hour excursion to Finisterre and Muxia, returning at around 5:30 PM. Detailed Itinerary • Muxia: Visit this village to see Nosa Señora da Barca, one of the most traditional marine sanctuaries in Galicia. Tradition has it that the Virgin appeared to the Apostle James here. • Fisterra: In the ancient world, pilgrims coming from Compostela encountered the vastness of the ocean here. Visit Faro, the most important location in the Costa da Morte area. After, enjoy free time for lunch. • Ézaro Waterfall: Visit the spectacular waterfall of the Xallas River, which crosses Ézaro and cascades into the sea. From a vantage point that’s unique in Europe, you’ll have breathtaking views of the town and coast. • Muros: Go on a walking tour of the old town and the fishing port that is a reminder of Galician culture and tradition where the sea is the protagonist. Admire the porches, galleries, and quaint style of the homes. • Ponte Maceira: Instead of passing pilgrims, head towards Fisterra via Ponte Maceira, a small town with lots of history. Its medieval bridge over the Tambre River and the surrounding vegetation create an atmospheric setting. • Return to Santiago de Compostela at 6:30 PM Upgrade your tour to explore the coast and its breathtaking views via boat and visit some of the region's most beautiful landscapes with a boat trip in Fisterra.

We covered a lot of ground. Our tour guide was very good, the bus was comfortable., the only downside was that Muxta was fogged in, but then that made for some interesting lighting effects if you're a photographer. Ezara Falls was less than exciting due to the adjoining power plant and resultant inability to get close, but nevertheless worthwhile. Ponte Maceira was better than anticipated and the bus driver proved his skill crossing the narrow bridge in the face of a stalled vehicle. Fog or no, good trip, recommended.

This tour allows one to experience some of the natural beauty of Galicia. Muxia and Fisterra both offer lovely views of the sea. Riding through the countryside we learned about the crops that are grown and saw the structures families use to store food for the winter. We learned a bit about living in Galicia and had time in the fishing village of Muros. This trip is a great introduction to Galicia and the wider world beyond Santiago de Compostela.

Very interesting tour! Fine schedule and plenty of time everywhere to absorb everything. Fascinating information from the super friendly guide, she herself comes from Muros! Nice detail that with this work she wants to put her region on the map and represent her generation as the small villages on the costa da morte are aging quite a lot! This tour is definitely recommended!
