Walking Beyond Santiago de Compostela:
Apps for Finisterre & Muxía

It's long been a tradition to continue walking all the way to the Spanish coast—after the long Camino journey, and after resting in Santiago de Compostela. 
Some will say this tradition started even before the pilgrimage routes were established nearly 2,000 years ago. 
And some, like those who believe in the ancient stories, will actually burn their well-worn hiking clothes soon after arriving on the coast.
Then they'll return home, renewed.
(and fully clothed)


Camino to Finisterre & Muxía—A Wise Pilgrim Guide

Elegant design. 
Easy navigation. 
Comprehensive details for everything you need to know to walk to Finisterre & Muxía.

[Note: December 2018 - the app developer is currently updating all of his guidebooks and apps. I’ll check in regularly to note when the latest update is available. Currently you can still get the app through the App Store link above, the Kindle Edition here, and the staple-bound print book here.

Camino Assist

One of the most feature-packed apps.
Highlight: Information to prepare for the Camino (a lot of great tips and advice!)

You can purchase a number of routes within the app, including the following:

  • Camino Frances

  • Camino del Norte

  • Camino Primitivo

  • Camino Portugues (from Tuí and from Lisbon

  • Finisterre & Muxía

  • Camino Madrid

  • ...and according to the app developers more "Zones" (routes) are coming.

"Play" awhile with the app to get a sense of the navigation. It's a bit complicated, but it is logical.

TIP
When I first opened this app, I saw Spanish-language instructions.
But after clicking Start, the app became an English-language guide.
I mention this so you don't give up on the app just after opening it—
if you're not fluent in Spanish.
