Pilgrims who walk or cycle to the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral on the Camino de Santiago celebrate — then decide whether to continue on to Finisterre on the coast. That name is from the Latin for “end of the earth“.
That’s an additional 88.9 km (54 miles) by the most popular route.
This N.W. corner of Spain — Galicia — is the rainiest.
The Stingy Nomads had one of their worst, and best, hiking days while on the Camino Finisterre.

Weather was bad when I reached Santiago on my 6 day cycling adventure from León, Spain .
I’m happy I cycled rather than walked. There is a lot of pavement. 😀
I decided to sign up for a very inexpensive (25€) all day van tour offered through my accommodation, the excellent Albergue Seminario Menor:
