TFC- Day 12: Corcubión-Fisterra-11km

Today Day 12: Corcubión-Fisterra is your last day of walking Camino de Santiago! Enjoy incredible views over Cape Fisterra, pass through San Roque then descend 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.

From the village, it is about 4km up to the Lighthouse. Here the 00.00 marker for Camino de Santiago is situated. Plan to be there for sunset if the day is clear you will be happy you did as the view is out of this world.

Congratulations! 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.

Time to celebrate

It is said that Galicia has the best seafood in the world so tonight a feast should be on your agenda.

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.
