Santiago - Finisterre

Since ancient times, all nations and travelers who came to this western corner of Europe felt the need to follow the sun to reach this land’s end in order to see the immensity of infinity and the sun sinking into the ocean. In the beginning some pilgrims decided to continue their pilgrimage to the coast (Costa da Morte), known as the end of the world back then, making the last stretch of their trip a route marked by the Milky Way.

In the land of Fisterra and the pilgrimage tradition, legend has it that the Apostle Saint James (Santiago) was executed in Palestine, and that his disciples brought his body to Galicia in a miraculous boat made of stone, thus fulfilling Saint James’ wish of resting in the land where he had preached.
