What to see in Fisterra

Fisterra

108 kilometers from La Coruña and 98 from Santiago, Fisterra, was considered in ancient times the end of the known world, hence the origin of its Latin name: Finis Terrae. When arriving at Fisterra, the first thing that is appreciated is the influx of visitors who come to finish their pilgrimage in Santiago de Compostela. It is inevitable to feel the religious air that is breathed as we mix with the people, which gives a special tone to our visit and gives us a new approach to what to see in Fisterra.

About the area

As its name indicates, you have reached the end of the earth, since it is the council that is furthest from the peninsula. The profession that stands out the most is fishing, where to this day people are still working on it to continue stocking up on it.

Fisterra is the end of the Camino de Santiago, and thanks to this the church of Santa María de las Arenas was built at the end of the 12th century, a place where the image of Santo Cristo de Finisterre is located and an appropriate place to take photos of this monument.

Important sites of medieval origin have also been discovered in the Hermitage of San Guillermo, which show the influx of pilgrims since medieval times.

Fisterra also has numerous beaches, both for surfing and enjoying its waves and sunbathing and enjoying a relaxing day with your family or friends.

Finisterre Lighthouse and Kilometer Zero of the Pilgrimage

The lighthouse was built in the mid-nineteenth century, nestled at the tip of the cape. It rises by 17 meters and a powerful siren has the task of warning boats when visibility is not good, given the dangers to which they are sensitive on the Costa da Morte.
Before arriving at the lighthouse we appreciate the marking of Kilometer Zero, which indicates that we have reached the “End of the World”. Many pilgrims, after acquiring La Compostela, their pilgrimage certificate, arrive at Kilometer Zero as the end of their pilgrimage and even take a bath on the beach. This ritual symbolizes a rebirth and a new beginning.

Church of Our Lady of the Areas

The church rises above Corveiro Beach. It was built from granite from the region in the twelfth century, but has undergone multiple transformations over time. This means that inside you can see vestiges of the original Romanesque architecture, and at the same time, Gothic details and medieval inscriptions, obviously more recent.

This religious building is the most important of the council and the place of celebration of the main religious festivals, such as Holy Week.

Lagosteira Beach

This semi-urban beach of great beauty and an extension of almost three kilometers has high occupancy during the year. Many pilgrims who complete the Camino de Santiago in Fisterra, do the ritual of bathing in its waters as a cleansing of the body. Some of them even burn their clothes, although it is currently a prohibited practice.
This beach is easily accessible, by car, bus or on foot.
Its waters are calm and you can see the degradation of blues that reach the shore, of very white sand.
It has cleaning and hygiene services, a promenade and restaurants and beach bars in its vicinity.
