The Caminos to Finisterre & Muxía - A Wise Pilgrim Guide to the Caminos from Santiago to the Costa da Morte [2020 Edition]
Written for the 2020 Walking Year
This guidebook does NOT include a Free Pilgrim Credential, but it IS available for free when bundled with one of the other guidebooks.
When Santiago doesn't quite feel like the end of the road, keep on walking until you reach the sea. This guidebook covers the epilogue to the Camino de Santiago, a short journey to the end of the world. Includes both Finisterre and Muxía.
For the first time in print, the guidebooks will include:
A comprehensive accommodation directory. Dozens of properties, including all albergues. Hotels, paradors, casa rurales, pensions, and camp sites. For albergues you will know: how many beds (including private rooms) the albergue has and how much they cost, phone number, months (and hours) open, and whether the albergue accepts non-pilgrims or reservations. You will also know whether they have a bar/restaurant, a kitchen for your use, whether they serve a group dinner, have vegetarian options, wifi, laundry facilities, or bicycle storage.
City by city information. Navigation tips and cautions, historical references, a list of available service (pharmacies, restaurants, atms, that kind of stuff) and dates for local fiestas.
Large Scale Maps: Large Scale Maps with no pre-determined stages. These maps are at the start of the book and are the best reference for anyone wanting to plan ahead without having to flip through the book.
Elevation Profile: The elevation profile sits alongside the large scale maps, giving you a better overview of the terrain ahead.
City Maps: Lots and lots of city maps. From the small villages to the regional capitals, if there is more than one option for accommodation a map is included to help you find it. These maps are inline with the guide and also show the nearest grocery, albergue, pharmacy, atm, and other bits.
Detours and alternative routes: The camino splits in a few places, and when it does an overview is provided to help you visualize the option ahead.
The guidebook has been produced to be climate neutral, and is printed in Santiago de Compostela.
