The Camino de Fisterra is, to many, the natural continuation and epilogue to the Camino Francés, or any other Camino. It starts in Santiago de Compostela and runs to Fisterra (more precisely, to Cape Fisterra) on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.

Fisterra (Finisterre in Spanish, finis terræ in Latin) means ‘the end of the world’, because in ancient times it was the westernmost point of the world as known to Europeans.
