Having finished the Camino Frances we headed for the town of Fisterra on the coast of Cape Finisterre (Roman: End of the Earth). The weather was exceptional and the views wonderful.

This track heads out along the access road to the famous lighthouse at the southern tip. At the spot where the Cabanas (grave cabins) are located we intended taking the lower track but with shorts the tall vegetation that had overgrown made it a bit messy and scratchy. We retraced our tracks to the road.

At the lighthouse there is a rough track that heads even further down towards the edge of the cliffs. There is actually a bronze monument on a rock here of an old walking boot!

Headed back along the western flank of the headland. Again about 1km back along the route we were going to take the lower track but it was a bit overgrown and not conducive to walking in shorts! Headed down to the most western point at Os Oidos and stopped for some nibbles. Headed back along the gravelled track and joined up with the old Camino route back into town.
