There are two routes: From Santiago to Muxía Fisterra or directly through Muxia:
Fisterra to Muxía
The stage Fisterra to Muxía is one of the most beautiful in the road for most of the time we can see the sea.
To take this route we go back on our feet and out of Fisterra on the main road to find a cairn path where we turn left and continue on a paved trail to San Martiño of Duio, near which the ruins of the lost city would hide Dugium.
The following nuclei that we are Escaselas and Hermedesuxo until you reach a fork in the track that allows us to go straight, parallel to the beach or face, or continue along the official route right.
The official route takes us to San Salvador and then crossed by a trail through a beautiful forest for about three kilometers to the village of Buxán. From here, the view of the beach is spectacular Face. From Buxán we continue to Castrexe and Padrís, a place that connects with the variant ran parallel to the beach Face.
From here, the road goes through stretches of forest, for about two kilometers until lined up here Canosa and the descent to Lires. This village is a good place to rest because it has several rural houses and pensions that allow us to divide the stage in two. We can not talk about Lires not to mention the spectacular sunsets and the beauty of its river that is home to countless species of birds.
We crossed uphill Lires place on the left, next to the town square, take the track that leads to Castro river and the bridge Baosilveiro. Then we Frixe where we can visit the Romanesque church of Santa Leocadia.
From Frixe we move to Guisamonde and Morquintián. At the exit of the latter signage it is confusing, and although a landmark invites us to continue on the left, it is best to ignore painted on the asphalt yellow arrows and take the track on the right. At 300 meters we have a detour to the left leads to Facho Lourido, the highest point of our journey to 269 meters. From here we can see from Camariñas to Cape Touriñán.
Del Monte Facho descend to Xurantes and went through the Fonte do Bico. Shortly after the beach Lourido found. We access Muxía bordering the sea, following the signs to municipal shelter where we can seal our credentials and collect muxiana.
And we have only a few meters to reach the goal. We climbed to the shrine along a parallel path to the sea. To our left is the church of Santa Maria located on the Monte do Bodice, on the right we see the traditional drying sheds conger and finally the Sanctuary Virxe da Barca, newly renovated after the fire suffered in December 2013 at Pedra dos Cadrís or Pedra de Abalar related to the legend about the arrival of the Virgin to our shores.
Santiago to Muxía
The road begins in Olveiroa, at the height of an old laundry, after climbing to the Monte do Sino, and crossing the bridge Vao of Ripas to reach Logoso, and then to hospital, where you can appreciate the views of the Xallas river.
The old road you get to a roundabout where the road forks. We can go towards Fisterra or Muxía direction.
Those who decide to take the Way of Olveiroa Muxia should follow the direction of Dumbría. Approximately 1 kilometer, we found a marker and take the path on the right. After walking for several dirt tracks and a stretch of asphalt, we quickly get to Dumbría.
In this town we have the Romanesque-Baroque church of Santa Eulalia of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries has a beautiful baroque altarpiece of style and various services that we can be useful (medical center, supermarket, pharmacy, ...).
We left right Dumbría leaving the health center. We crossed the AC 552 and following the cairn, continue along a eucalyptus forest to the village of Trasufre where the Chapel da Santiña do Espiño with its "holy source".
After crossing the river Castro Senande we move up, place with leading emblazoned houses, and then to Villastose. At 300 meters from the latter, we have a detour to the right that leads to Quintáns, a good place to regain strength. Following the indications we got to Ozón with its Romanesque church of the twelfth century, an old monastery and a granary granite eighteenth century of almost 27 meters long.
From Ozón, guided by cairns, we Merexo, a place that has beautiful views of the Ria de Camariñas, reaching Os Muiños where we cross the Black River and up to the Romanesque church of San Xiau of Moraime the twelfth century, one of the few in Galicia retaining pictorial remains of the fourteenth century.
Casas Novas continue climbing and cross the road Berdoias-Muxía to link to a path that leads to the chapel of San Roque. We made a last descendo Espiñeirido the beach. From this place we can contemplate the beauty of Muxía.
After skirting the beach of the Cross and follow the promenade indicators lead us, without possibility of loss, to the Virxe da Barca Sanctuary and its well-known Pedra de Abalar that mark the end of our stage for this day.
