Finsterre – Craggy and Rugged (2023)

The craggy coastlines have an irresistible allure. The pond stretched all the way to the Americas from the west coast of Spain. Finsterre is truly Lands End, on the Atlantic coast. It is a fishing village. The coasts is studded with practical fishing boats with outboard motors, not the fancy yachts that line up on the coast in other sexy destinations like Costa del Sol. Most who do the Caminho make the 75 km trip to the coast to take in the ruggedness and the authenticity of rural Spain. There are many viewpoints from which you can contemplate the unfathomable ocean. A couple of lighthouses occupy vantage positions and their basements repurpose themselves as cafes and restaurants. The drive to Finsterre is scenic. Forests and streams line the road.
