Today marks another step in our westward journey, as we set our sights on the evocative landscapes of Cape Finisterre and Muxía. Over the course of 12 days and traversing more than 500 miles through the diverse terrain of Spain, we’ve embraced the essence of pilgrimage, echoing the footsteps of generations past who sought solace and enlightenment along this revered route.

As we approach Cape Finisterre, an undeniable sense of reverence envelops us. This geographical terminus, aptly named “End of the World,” stands as a testament to the intrepid spirit of those who came before us. For centuries, pilgrims viewed this rugged coastline as the ultimate destination, a symbolic culmination of their arduous journey. Here, amidst the crashing waves of the Atlantic, we pause to reflect on our own pilgrimage, drawing inspiration from the timeless rhythm of the sea.

In Muxía, our exploration takes us to the heart of Galicia’s mystique. Here, amidst the untamed beauty of the Costa da Morte, or Coast of Death, we confront the elemental forces that have shaped this land and its people. It’s a place steeped in maritime lore, where tales of shipwrecks and heroic rescues echo through the ages. Yet, amid the rugged cliffs and churning waters, there’s a profound sense of resilience—a testament to the enduring spirit of the Galician people.
