The Way of Lighthouses or the Camino dos Faros is a route that runs along the coast of Galicia (Costa da Morte), connecting the Rías Altas and the Rías Baixas, the Cantabrian coast and the Atlantic coast.

The trail of approximately 145 kilometers is divided into six stages that cross paths, cliffs, lighthouses, beaches, and small coastal towns. The different lighthouses of the area stand out: Fisterra, Laxe, Punta Nariga, Cabo Touriñán, Cabo Vilán, Roncudo, etc; and the spectacular views from the mountains, the forts, sanctuaries and monuments.

We recommend you to enjoy the cuisine of the region, rich in seafood and fish; and visit sanctuaries such as the Virgin of the Boat in Muxía.
