This small, charming town is where I live and where this course takes place. Located at the end of the Camino, it’s the perfect location to rest, relax and enjoy. If you fancy hikes, sunsets and the sea, this is your place.
Hikes. You will find plenty of trails to small beaches, lovely villages and peaceful forests. The most popular hike is, of course, the Camino de Santiago. But there are many others to enjoy such as the Lightouse trail which connects ancient and modern lighthouses through the coast.
Sunsets. We are right by the western-most point of Europe, the last land where the sun kisses the Earth during summer. Seeing the sun set into the ocean is truly special and, in this wonderful natural surrounding, it’s an experience you cannot miss!
The sea. Muxia’s history is closely related to the sea. The coast is wild and untamed to this day. In fact, it is known as Costa da Morte (Death’s coast) due to the high number of shipwrecks which have taken place here.
But that’s not all! The region offer a wide range of natural wonders such as waterfalls, capes, beaches and forests to discover.
My name is Sarah and I’m a passionate Spanish teacher.
My aim is to help students like you feel confident when speaking Spanish and enjoy their Camino.
I’ve walked the Camino and I now live in Muxía, the last stop of Saint James Way in Galicia. I’ve walked 3 different sections (Sarria to Santiago, Saint Jean de Luz to Castro Urdiales and Cercedilla to Segovia) so I can help you prepare for the ins and outs of this amazing journey.
In our lessons, I will help you learn vocabulary and grammar, but also understand the cultural richness behind the Camino and Spanish.
My name is Alex. I an avid hiker and a food enthusiast.
Residing in the charming town of Muxía, where the sea and the Camino converge, I draw inspiration from the region’s bountiful natural resources and rich culinary heritage.
When not cooking, I can be found exploring the trails and landscapes of the Camino.
