Today Day 12: Corcubión-Fisterra, is your last day of walking Camino de Santiago. You will enjoy incredible views over Cape Fisterra. Passing through San Roque then descending to Estorde. Hugging the coast along Sardiñeiro and Langosteira Beach (an extraordinary sensation to walk on the sand, instead of land). Arriving at the vibrant village of Fisterra.
Depending on the group and how you feel (your decision on the day) we can meet in the village, then walk the last 4km up to the Lighthouse where the 00.00 marker for Camino de Santiago is situated.
You have achieved your goal!
Here you can reflect on your Camino. Contemplate the completion of your challenge, where it is said you leave the old behind you and walk into your new life.
Galicia has the best seafood in the world (well so the Galicians say) so tonight we will share a feast together.
Note; on the way to the lighthouse you can visit the municipal cemetery. Located on the edge of the coast, as you continue the climb up Mount Facho you will find a shrine dedicated to Saint William. Also “Cama de San Guillermo” (Saint William’s Bed). A pit excavated in the rock about the size of a human body. According to local legend women of the era laid to pray to the Saint for fertility. There are many myths and legends that all lend to this as a sacred site for fertility rituals that some still adhere to today.
