Faro de Fisterra, Fisterra

4.6
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Fisterra
Take the time to walk out to Faro de Fisterra, a lighthouse on a famous cape. As the nearest lighthouse to the Americas, the farthest west in Europe, it was appreciated by sailors as their last glimpse of home before many long days at sea. However, its bright beam served a much greater purpose: Its light reaches 65 km (40 mi) away, warning ships about this rocky coastline, known as the Coast of Death because of the many shipwrecks. Take a look at the collection of paintings inside. Take a look at our Fisterra road trip site to schedule your visit to Faro de Fisterra and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • It is a magical place, surrounded by rugged cliffs. You really have the impression to arrive at the edge of the Earth, and then only the endless sea. Beautiful.

  • Finisterre, as its name suggests is at the end of the earth known for years, and the Km 0 of the way of the Pilgrim-after much travelling we have completed the camino de Santiago and just returning tired but happy-not expected Zamora and Salamanca which is not po co-the view is splendid and - for a moment - the fantasy makes us think that it is the end-a very kind Mr there is that, as in Machu Pichi seals US passport to give faith.-now, go to the port to taste an excellent fish, visit the waterfall of Ézaro the only one that goes directly to the sea, strolling along the Rua Das Mortes, which death has nothing is a road bordering the sea all the time.
