Muxia/fisterra to Santiago

Hello again folks,

I'm now 3/3 having done my first Camino in 2017, 2018 and just finished booking 2019. This year however, after a particularly harrowing year I'm taking my mother and her new knee on a mini Camino/relax/yoga trip for four nights and five days at the end of May. We will only walk for three, having done the whole sdc - negreira - Oliveiroa - cee - fisterra - lires - muxia trip we are going to do the more manageable easy going days of Cee - fisterra - lires and stay a night in lires (well worth a stop in my opinion).
After lires we were hoping to walk to muxia and travel to Santiago the same day but the only bus is at 2.45 which leaves us very tight on time. I've looked into taxi services (€100 min) which is crazy. So instead we thought we'd double back and walk back to fisterra with its many more bus options (although this of course means mother can't get a cert for fisterra- muxia which she says means nothing to her, but her eyes say different! 🤣) Also, the monbus is a local bus so the 100k journey takes nearly 3 hours which again leaves us tight on time...

So, my long winded post is to find out if any of you lovely people have any other suggestions or options for me ...

I'm aware of Monbus and bus Ferrin...

I'd cycle it but mother's knee doesn't have the bend yet ...

Thanks for any advice or information!

Hi Kanga,

Thanks for the reply, ya I'm going to pop it in to bla bla and hope someone is going that way that day! It's a little risky though in case no one is so I'd rather something a little firmer ... Thanks for the suggestion though :)

Hi,

last June the taxi-fee from Muxía to Santiago or the Airport was only 60,00 €. Besides that I think it is feasible, to walk the 15 km from Lires to Muxía before 2.30pm, if you do not start too late in the morning.
The direct bus takes approximately 2 hours to get to Santiago. There is another bus at 6.45 am. On weekends there is a different schedule.

Hi Rick,

Ya, it was more an option like this I was thinking of, as we will likely arrive in Muxia before 11am...

Thanks!

Great, at a push I feel we could do the 60.... Thanks for that!

If you get to Muxía early you could also talk to the ladies who sell their embroideries and needleworks in a little wooden hut in the harbour. As far as a pilgrim friend has told me, one of the taxi-drivers is the son of one of them and she offered that she could arrange a transfer to the airport at a special price (which was 50 € I think). So you certainly won´t get stuck in Muxía.
