For many, the real end of St James Way is not Santiago de Compostela but Finisterre. The truth is that the cape was already a place of pilgrimage before Christianity.
For Celts and Romans, it was the perfect setting for pagan rites often related to the “miracle” of the sun. The legend says that the Ara Solis, an altar of worship to the sun linked to ancestral fertility rites, was set here.
Truth or not, the fact is that watching the sun go down in the horizon in Finisterre is an overwhelming and magical experience.
If you want to feel mystical energy of Costa da Morte, the Finisterre lighthouse-keepers’ residence was turned into a cozy hotel.
