In Roman times, Finisterre was known as the Finis Terrae, the last place of the known world. Since the discovery of the tomb of the Apostle in the ninth century, Fisterra became part of the Jacobean tradition. It is said that the disciples of Santiago travelled to Dugium looking for an authorization from a Roman legacy to bury the Apostle in Compostela. This authorization was denied and they had to flee across a bridge that collapsed when the romans were passing through. This tradition has been further strengthened by the great devotion to the Santo Cristo de Fisterra and Virxe da Barca, who travelled on a stone boat to give encouragement to Santiago in his preaching mission.
Nowadays, the way Finisterre-Muxía is the perfect end for all pilgrims who arrives at Santiago and want to make a last efforf to reach the sea in A Costa da Morte.
