The big map o the Caminos de Santiago

(O'Cebreiro to Santiago) OR (Sarria to Finisterre) with 7-8 days walking

Plan to walk from Sarria to Santiago and on to Finisterre in April 2016.

I am trying to decide which of these two routes to take as I have heard wonderful things both about O'Cebreiro and Finisterre. I'm not sure I can fit both in with only 7-8 days of walking available.

I consider myself to be in very good walking shape but this will be my first camino and don't want to feel rushed through it to meet a goal.

Any ideas on pros and cons of O'Cebreiro versus the walk on to Finisterre?

Thanks for all of your help and for previous posts that convinced me I could not do both in my allotted time.

Yes, if you start in Sarria you have the choice of a few days in Santiago (and do the tour of the Cathedral roof, check out the fresh market, try the fabulous tapas bars in Ruo Franco!) or of walking on.

All that we are is the result of what we have thought.

On a time budget of 7-8 days...start Sarria hike to Santiago and enjoy Santiago but day bus tour Finisterre to Muxia...or Start Santiago hike to Finisterre and Muxia then bus back to Santiago and enjoy Santiago.
