|Accommodation in hotels + Luggage transfer from hotel to hotel + Insurance
The last stage of the Way of Saint James: the journey to "Finis Terrae" (Latin for the end of the world) in order to clean yourself spiritually there and then take the way back. This ancient tradition of pilgrimage goes back even to pre-Christian origins.
It is an ancient tradition that the pilgrims who often already had traveled hundreds or even thousands of kilometers in order to pay homage to the Apostle in Santiago, would then make a few kilometers more to reach the end of the world, "Finis Terrae". On the beach "Playa da Langosteira" they used to take a purifying bath, then would dress new clothes, burn the old ones, and witness the sunset. Now they could, spiritually cleaned, take the way back to Santiago de Compostela.
Also today many pilgrims make the last stage to Finisterre to experience this spiritual cleaning. The way leads from Santiago down to the sea, crossing magnificent landscapes and picturesque villages, and finally reaches the "Costa de la Morte" (Coast of Death), which was back then regarded the end of the world.
