In the direction of Finisterre before arriving it is recommended to stop at the viewpoint of Fisterra where you can see an incredible landscape of the town.
Once we get to the town of Fisterra we will approach its lighthouse where we will contemplate the old “Finis Terrae”, that is, the end of the world. We can contemplate the place where it was thought that the sun went out in its waters.
It is a place of legends, fantasy and fascination. If after this landscape you are able to recover from this experience and if we have enough time, we can head towards the wonderful Ézaro Waterfall or eat in Finisterre, if we choose to follow the route on the way back we can stop at Cee and eat nearby its beaches or in its charming town.
La Cascáda de Ézaro is a place where we can enjoy tranquility walking along its wooden paths and looking at all its splendor in the viewpoints. It is a place where Kayaks are usually rented to get closer to the waterfall.
After this visit on the way back we have the option, if time allows, to go to Caldeiras Do Castro, a perfect place to relax and bathe in cold waters of natural pools. We can visit its Chapel and the picnic area.
Ending this day 4 we return to Muxía for dinner and a proper rest.

We will see its port and fish market and we will head towards Noya. If we do not mind taking a detour through the area, we can go through the Ponte Nafonso and approach the Tambre hydroelectric power station also called the hydroelectric Cathedral, see its fishermen's refuge and go through its suspension bridge to see the landscape.
When we get to Noya we can take a walk through the town and see the parish of San Martín de Noia and the Plaza da Constitución. This town specializes in shellfish, especially cockle and clams. It is a good place to take a break and try its gastronomy.
