Step by Step

Enjoy this excursion from Santiago de Compostela to the Costa da Morte, a stretch of coastline that owes its name to the numerous shipwrecks that have occurred over the centuries. The entire itinerary lasts approximately 9 hours and takes place aboard an air-conditioned bus.

At all times, you will be accompanied by a local guide who will explain the history and anecdotes of everything you will see during the day. The tour includes hotel pick-up, but only if you are staying in Santiago de Compostela.

Discover Ponte Maceira, a village of just over 50 inhabitants, famous for the Roman bridge that crosses the river Tambre and the Pazo de Balandrón, which, despite its traditional appearance, only dates back to the 1950's. After a short break, the bus resumes its journey to the following towns and monuments:

  • Santuario da Virxe da Barca: a temple overlooking the ocean. According to tradition, the Virgin Mary travelled here to meet the apostle Santiago.
  • Cape Finisterre: the most westerly point on earth, at least in Roman times. It is a peninsula of wild charm that juts out into the icy waters of the Atlantic. You can have a bite to eat in the village of the same name (lunch is not included), enter the Sanctuary of Santa María das Areas and walk to the lighthouse.
  • Fervenza de Ézaro: a suggestive waterfall that ends in the sea.
  • Hórreo de Carnota: hórreos are stone constructions that were used to preserve corn and potatoes. Their peculiarity is that they are suspended from the ground to avoid the effects of humidity and to keep animals away. The one in Carnota is one of the largest in Galicia. Its Baroque structure dates from the 18th century.

The route ends in Muros, a fishing village on the Costa da Morte. Its old quarter is splendidly preserved and it is worth strolling along beautiful cobbled streets such as Rua Axesta, Rua Real and Rua Esperanza. At the end of the stage, the bus will accompany you back to Santiago.

    It was a different experience, very entertaining and with a lot of learning along the way. A pity that the weather was not on our side on the day we went.

    It was quite a fun experience, although a bit exhausting. Recommended to do it once, it is worthwhile to get to know these places and learn about their culture. We are happy with our choice.
