The stone-built fishing village of Muxía, on the south side of the Ría de Camariñas, is a beloved pilgrimage spot thanks to the belief that the Virgin Mary appeared to Santiago (St James) while he was preaching here. Trails to Muxía are becoming ever more popular as extensions of the Camino de Santiago, and Muxía and the surrounding area are experiencing something of a tourism boom as a result.
The spectacular coast and pretty inland landscapes between here and Fisterra to the south make for great exploring. Another picturesque fishing village, Camariñas, is only 4km northeast of Muxía across the Ría de Camariñas – but 24km by road. Fortunately it's a pretty drive, via the inviting beach Praia do Lago, the hórreo-studded hamlet Leis and the riverside village of Cereixo.
