Full description
The first stop is at Ponte Maceira, a small town near Santiago de Compostela, and an obligatory stop for pilgrims who continue their journey towards the "end of the world". Wander around this charming little town, best known for a 14th-century bridge over the Tambre river. Admire the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside as well as a beautiful set of medieval mills. Continue on the coast, where you will find one of the most spectacular lighthouses in Europe, the Vilán Cape Lighthouse. Head inside to visit a small museum about the lighthouse's history. From the cliffs outside you will be able to feel the wind and see a rocky outpost that caused many shipwrecks.   On the other side of the bay is the next stop on the tour, Muxia. Here there is a beautiful sanctuary beside the Atlantic ocean, as well as three stones considered sacred by the local Galicians. Finally and before returning to Santiago de Compostela, visit one of the largest granaries in Galicia and enjoyed beautiful panoramic views of the area.
