Faro de Finisterre, means literally the lighthouse at the end of the earth. In Roman times it was considered to be the westernmost point on the Iberian Peninsula and the end of the known world. Later it has been discovered that the westernmost point of the Peninsula is in Portugal and the westernmost point on mainland Spain is slightly more to the north.
Cape Finisterre is also the final destination of the Camino de Santiago, where pilgrims from all over Europe has walked to the famous Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, where they believe the remains of Saint James are to this day.
