Camino De Faros (The Lighthouse Way). Finisterre to Lires:

It did not take long to realize this Camino is nothing like the Camino de Santiago. There were no bars or much of anything between Finisterre and Lires. There was very little pavement walking. White sand beaches along the coastal shore connected by rugged narrow rocky mountain trails with bright white, yellow, purple, and blue …

Camino de Faros. The Lighthouse Way:

After 3 weeks of settling in at Global Pilgrim House in Muxia, feeling a bit antsy, I will start The Lighthouse Way, a 200 kilometer walk linking Finisterre and Muxia, with Malpica along the Galician Costa de Morte (Coast of Death).

Camino de Santiago Gran Canaria Island; Day 1 Maspolomas to Ayagures

Riding out Covid on Gran Canaria Island I learned there is a Camino de Santiago here. How could I not walk it. And some of the most beautiful terrain of any Camino. In the 16th century some Galician sailors, in thanks for being saved from a great storm after their prayers to Santiago, Built a …
