The end of the earth.  Or so people thought for hundreds of years. 

This far most westerly point of land in Spain is a spot where some of the real crazies doing El Camino want to reach.  They then burn their clothes as part of the tradition. 

Well, I'm sorry, but there is no way that I am pedaling another 60 miles.  Santiago was my goal and Santiago it will be.

However, just for curiosity, I did rent a car and drive to Fisterra today in the afternoon, after the moving mid day mass. 

It was a gorgeous day for a drive. What surprised me the most was the unbelievably beautiful Atlantic coastline of Spain. It's very similar to the British Columbia coastline but with many more inlets and bays. Very interesting. This is a hidden jem. 


  1. Great views, great picture of you. Did you witness any burning of the clothes while there? Denise

  2. From Geoff--did you consider a haircut?
