Bus service to Muxia

Camino(s) past & future
The Francis Way - April/May 2018
#1
In Santiago today I met a pilgrim who missed out on seeing Muxia as he did not know there was a bus service to Muxia from Finisterre. Vive Finisterre tours will take you to Muxia at 9.30am from the bus station in Finisterre for 12 euro and pick you up from Muxia at 1.30 pm to bring you back to Finisterre. The bus also takes you out to the lighthouse and monestry for 20 minutes and drops you back at Muxia town centre. Remember, regardless if you are travelling to Muxia, Porto, Santiago or any towns on the coastal route there is more than one bus line to check. Monbus provides a good service to Santiago also but can take longer. Tickets can be bought at the travel office up to 8pm each night or check your Albergue as many are ticket agents for tour and bus lines so you can prepurchase your tickets. But you can buy tickets on monbus also.
Hope this is helpful. Carmen

What about a bus from Santiago to Muxia? I’ve been to Finisterre, but this year I’m wondering about a trip to Muxia. What is there? Is it worth it? I guess it mainly depends on transportation and the time frame. What do you think?
Thanks...

We took a bus from Santiago to Muxia, two days in Muxia and then on to Finisterre, bussed back to Santiago from Finisterre. I thought the buses were excellent, everyone you ask seems to know where and when, because both towns are quite small. Loved both villages!

I thought that the waves crashing on these rocks in Muxia were pretty spectacular.

Muxia is absolutely worth it! I am so glad I didn’t miss experiencing what was for me a powerful, beautiful and meaningful end to my Camino. The beautiful picture above is only a small snapshot of what you will see there. There is more. Go at sunset on a clear day! 5D6B41E3-ED3C-4A5A-B2B1-F17E2709F2F2.jpeg AED1F582-9BB4-4392-BA4E-7AAFC3030D7C.jpeg AED1F582-9BB4-4392-BA4E-7AAFC3030D7C.jpeg 359ED70C-32E9-46DC-8B16-54ED55B8DF18.jpeg 359ED70C-32E9-46DC-8B16-54ED55B8DF18.jpeg

The Spanish regard Muxia as the end , not Finisterre.
One has a very deep religious significance , the other The Lighthouse.

We adored both but Muxia has the better feeling on return Camino's.

If you ignore those who think that the tomb of Santiago as the end, I agree that tourists may have made Fisterra the coastal end, not the Spanish. I think that adequate bus service to Muxia has made it increasingly popular, along with the somewhat strained scene in "The Way." It still is not well-served with walking paths and infrastructure.

Can you share any more information regarding Vive Finisterre? It is the least googleable name for a company imaginable.

Thanks all for comments. I have walked Santiago to Muxia then on to Finisterre before but this year will have my 71 year old sister with me and think she may struggle after 10 days walking. I wanted to travel on the weekend out of Santiago to Muxia and then on to Finisterre but it seems that the bus service doesn't operate on the weekend? Can I ask one of you to provide me with an English Website for one of the bus companies please. I'm thinking Mass Friday in Santiago, bus to Muxia stay 2 days, bus to Finisterre staying 1 night then back in to Santiago. Also, what is the best bus pick up point in Santiago for the bus to Muxia?

Many thanks all.

Thank you so much Domigee. I still don't seem to be able to find a weekend service between Finisterre and Muxia maybe I will consider a Taxi!

Take 2 days to walk , each 12km and stop at Lires , or
Ask a Pension in Finisterre for advice .....they live there.

I have walked it before but my sister who is with me would not be able to do it as well as the previous 10 days walking. Thanks for your help though.
