Where to go after the Camino?

Jump to last reply

I find myself (happily) planning to do another segment of a Camino , this time the last 120 kms of the Camino Portugues. We're planning to start from Tuy, and arrive Santiago on 7/18. Originally we thought of staying in Santiago about 3 nights- 4 nights (including a day trip to Finisterre) and then tour around Galicia for a few days (we would rent a car for that) and end somewhere were we could return the car and take a train to Madrid (probably on 7/26, we're flying back to the US from Mad on 7/30).

I have a few questions/concerns and I'm hoping some of you can provide suggestions:

1) Would making Santiago our home base thru 7/26 and using it as a base for exploring Galicia make sense? Again, we would rent a car for the days we would travel out of Santiago. Among places/ areas we're interested in seeing are : Finisterre, Muxia, La Coruña and the Rias Altas, Lugo.

2) Any suggestions for other itineraries in Galicia area?

3) If it doesnt make sense to use Santiago as base, could you offer suggestions as to where to move to next and for how many days?

4) I know that 7/25 is the Saint's feast and I'm sure as such Santiago will be more crowded than usual. Is that a thing to avoid, or is it one of those experiences that are worth it? I have been to Santiago several times, one time was there a week before the Feast and I remember many nice concerts an typical dances on public squares.

Thank you in advance for your help!
