I walked from Santiago to Muxia the last week in May this year. I walked Santiago to Negreira, Negreira to Vilaserio, where I stopped because of torrential rains that had me soaked thru my Altus!, Vilaserio to Olvieroa, Olvieroa to Quintans, Quintans to Muxia. Aside from the storm that had some pilgrims opting for taxis, and some showers, the weather was warm and pleasant. I met only 4 pilgrims between Dumbria and Muxia, and the way was one of the most beautiful. I did not have enough time to go onto Finisterre and so had planned only going to Muxia at a leisurely pace and enjoying the special atmosphere that pervades there.Hi my wife and I are thinking of walking the above and was wondering (approx) how long it would take to walk as above? Any ideas and any tips please?
I haven't yet decided whether I will walk from Muxia in one day or two.
@trecile, Lires is lovely. Possibly the loveliest spot on that whole trail. A stroll out along the river bank, a glimpse of the amazing maelstrom that forms as the tide rolls, a relaxing drink at the little bar on the headland, shoals of Sea-Bass chasing the mullet fry in the shallows while the Sea Eagles swoop for there supper.......
I guess I'm suggesting taking two days which will also give you time to follow the coast out to the light-house before walking down into Fisterra.
My brother and I walked from SDC to Muxia in 3 days, two of them were long. And we did stay in Lires on the way from Muxia to Finisterre -- I wouldn't miss that. It was lovely.
You two are really tempting me. Do you need to have a reservation in Lires ?
I remember that in 2014 when I came to Muxia I met Korean women which I have previously met in El Acebo (I was walking Madrid and Invierno and Frances in between) and she splurged on a roof terrace apartment in Bela Muxia Albergue for 50€ per night. She invited me for an evening drink up there and with the view from that terrace all I can say it's a bargain for a couple or even more people. The sunset can be compared to the one at Cabo Finisterre. I would surely try to find someone to share that on my next visit to Muxia.
