FAQ

From the discovery of the tomb of the apostle Saint James (XI century), certain pilgrims decided to extend their trip until to the Cost of death (Costa da morte)

You departure point in the city of Santiago and its destination in the cape of Fisterra (in the past was called "The end of the world")

According the Calixtino Codex, the disciples of Saint James travelled to Dugium, the present Fisterra, looking for authorization from the Roman authorities to bury the Apostle in Santiago de Compostela, and they were jailed there. They managed to flee and, on the verge of being catched, they crossed a bridge that collapsed when the Roman troops persecuting them were passing.

When you reach Sarria you can obtain an special certificate which prove you have walked until "The end of the world"
