Sanctuary of Virxe da Barca
A stop for many pilgrims: The Sanctuary of Virxe da Barca, which faces the force of the ocean and where you can see the different and most famous stones of this place, full of legends about the arrival of the Apostle Santiago.
At this point you can see the famous “END OF THE WORLD” for the ancient Romans, which coincides with Cape Finisterre Here you will find the Finisterre Lighthouse, the Km 0 of the Camino to Finisterre, the view of the COSTA DA MORTE, etc.
Perhaps because Cape Fisterra hides the real secret of the Costa da Morte: wild landscapes and impressive beaches, some (sheltered by the promontory ) with calm waters and others with strong waves like Mar de Fora, one of the wildest beaches in Galicia.
