Day 16: Muxia

On Day 15 we rested. and still managed to walk more than 10 km in Santiago. We were now staying at Hospedaje O Padron, which is single metres away from the Pilgrim’s Office where you get your Campostela. We went back to San Martin Pinairo for another excellent Meal of the Day for just 11 Euros each. When we finished our botle of red wine, they brought another one! Best kept secret in Santiago, me thinks.

Anyway, after seeing Emilio Estevez’ The Way movie I wanted to see Muxia. But we did not have time to walk, and our feet are gone… we took the 09h45 bus from the Autobus Station to Muxia, 8 Euro each. We arrived two hours later, and immediately fell in love with Muxia!

You can not plan a Camino and not see Muxia!

Here is why:

This must be the most beautiful exit out of a church building in the whole world!

And it is a good symbolic end to our journey.

We would have walked from Muxia to Lires to Fisterra. My wife’s feet are hurting so much that we will take the taxi instead. On to Fisterra on Monday. I have ended my first Camino there and it is awesome. But Muxia blew me away! Just resting a while, and then we will walk back to see the sun set at the church at around 22h00.
