Cee was unlike any place I had seen for over three weeks—a coastal town. I was excited as I walked through but wondered where everyone was. It was early afternoon and the downtown was very quiet. After the downtown area, I realized most people, although still not that many, were at the market and shopping mall. A pleasant place, but I wonder how many pilgrims spend much time in Cee, with Finisterre only 10 kilometers away.
I left my last post, On The Camino Finisterre in Spain, Dumbria to Cee, facing the quiet downtown. Let’s continue. I understand there’s a beach that’s close by.
Along the seawall, Cee had these colorful pillars. This one depicted a pilgrim. Let’s took a look on the other side…
Ahhh… a beach and the Atlantic Ocean. I was back at sea level. This is looking toward Cee. I took the route along the beach to the adjacent town of Corcubión. If you’re walking, most of the hostels, bars, and stores are in Cee.
Another look at the beach that had been nicely raked that morning. I couldn’t understand why the beach was deserted. It seemed odd on such a spectacular day.
This estuary is the Ría de Corcubión which includes the large cove from southwest of here, all the way to the tip of Cape Finisterre.
The Camino climbs steeply from Corcubión and here, I’m looking back at the town in the foreground. On the other side is an industrial section of Cee.
As I climbed, looking toward a village above the rocky coastline near Corcubión.
Cape Finisterre, Cabo Fisterra
There it is: looking across the Corcubión Estuary, Ría de Corcubión, to Cabo Fisterra with the town of Finisterre on the nearside. Let’s take a closer look…
The colorful rugged coastline with the yellow broom providing contrast with the brilliant blue. I believe there is an isolated beach below.
This is another beach, the small Praia de Estorde.
This beach is Praia da Langosteira and is about 2 kilometers long. If you think it’s quiet on this beach at midday, it’s probably because there is the wealth of beaches in the area. These are the beaches facing east. In an upcoming post I’ll take you to the famous beach, Praia de Rostro, on the west side.
A scenic walk through some parkland.
We’ll finish off this post on this boardwalk that takes you through the sand dunes.
I hope you enjoyed this post as we made it to the edge of Finisterre. It was a beautiful day as you can tell, and a really fun and exhilarating walk. On my next post, On and Off The Camino Finisterre in Finisterre, Spain, we’ll visit the town itself Finisterre. Please join me as I take you to closer to the end of the world (not quite there yet).
