ⓘ Fisterra

Fisterra is a municipality in the province of A Coruña, in the autonomous community of Galicia, Spain. It belongs to the comarca of Fisterra. Fisterra is on Cape Finisterre, the final destination for many pilgrims on the Way of St. James.

Fisterra is on the rocky Costa da morte Galician: "coast of death", named because of the large number of shipwrecks along these shores. In the name Fisterra comes from Latin FINIS terrae, meaning "Lands end". This name is due to the fact that this area is on a remote Peninsula that is one of the most westerly points of Land in Galicia, and therefore in Spain.

Fisterra is an ancient port and fishing village, formed narrow streets leading to the Plaza de Ara Solis. Chapel of the Nose Señora do Bon Suceso from the 18th century, is located on the square. There is a lighthouse on a 600 metre promontory called "Monte Facho" at the tip of Cape Finisterre overlooking the Atlantic ocean. On the road to the lighthouse is the parish Church of Santa maría de Fisterra which contains the chapel of Santo Cristo.

Fisterra is 108 km from La coruña, and 98 km from Santiago de Compostela.
