The stunning landscapes of Cape Finisterre and the beauty of the Costa da Morte coastline will take your breath away. Prepare to discover one of the most idyllic parts of Galicia when you take this tour from Santiago.

Fisterra and Costa da Morte Full Day Trip

We will depart from the Plaza de Galicia square at the scheduled time. After traveling for around 30 minutes, we will arrive at the picturesque village of Ponte Maceira where you will hear all about the history of the place and its inhabitants.

Then we head to the coastal town of Muxia. Here you will visit the magnificent Virxe da Barca sanctuary which looks out over the ocean as we reveal all about local history, legends, and mysteries.

Our route then continues along the Costa da Morte to the lighthouse of Cape Finisterre. Standing on the craggy cliffs, you will hear various folk tales about boats that disappeared along this wild coastline which the Romans referred to as ´the end of the earth'. Later, you will have 2 hours of free time to have lunch in the picturesque town of Fisterra and try the delicious local food.

After eating, we then take a walk to the wonderful setting of the Ézaro waterfall, an amazing natural spectacle caused by the force of the Xallas river. This is the only river in Europe which ends with cascades into the ocean. To the south of this beautiful spot, in the municipality of Carnota, we will see the largest granary in the world.

The return trip to Santiago de Compostela will be made along the fabled Costa da Morte, during which you will hear more about the history surrounding these unique landscapes of Galicia.
