Sarria to Santiago takes you over the western mountain range in Spain and can be wet as the cool breezes blow off the Atlantic ocean.

 After leaving Sarria you will pass through, Portomarin, Melide, and Arzua where you will traverse rolling hills, farming communities and experience local culinary delights which have their own traditions, as well as a plethora of historical significance and beauty.

Once you arrive in Santiago you may experience many emotions as your journey will have ended. However, there is still more westward land to follow. You can either walk or bus to Finisterre and or Muxia. This is a good choice for pilgrims as it helps put the desire to continue to walk further west as there is no more land to traverse. Stay in Finisterre or Muxia to watch the sunset at the ocean while contemplating your journey. There are regular buses to and from Finisterre and Muxia so it is an easy choice.
