The hostel as identity space.

Bela Muxía is a hostel and a thematic narrative that immerses us in the identity of the sea of the Costa da Morte, Christianized metonym my of old prehistoric cults stones, Atlantic West of Europe and the end of the Camino de Santiago (Fisterra – Muxía).

The simple interior space in which you enter has been designed with the same literarytone that host its walls. Therefore, we have taken into account events that have historically marked sailor who now visits the small village.

Events that collect the hostel as traces of memory and offers to you, traveler, so that you can share with us the echoes of the old pilgrims who have visited us since the middle agesand the subtle voices of the poets who sang romantic shipwreck and the dramaturgy of death, from Rosalía de Castro and F. García Lorca to José Ángel Valente.

The Camino de Santiago to the finisterre.

The camino de Santiago, as cultural space linked to Europeanism first emerged in themiddle ages, was also a place of social and economic meetings, cardinados under the religious idea and penitent, perhaps mystical, aspiration to the mythical Finisterre on thelimits of the Western Atlantic. In recent years, in a framework that reinforces the idea of Europe, the road seems to be supranational symbol of a common identity which goes beyond local feelings.

The Camino de Santiago to Finisterre, operating since medieval times, concludes in the villages of Fisterra and Muxía. Once pilgrims came to Santiago de Compostela and visited the tomb of the Apostle, used to move towards the Finistère from the Plaza del Obradoiro, dodging different towns and villages of several town halls, to Hospital.  From here the Pilgrim could go Fisterra or Muxía, make, later, the coastal road between both villages.

Muxia appears linked to Santiago Apóstol and the road by the legend of the María apparition. According to that, the Virgin became navigating to Muxia in a stone, driven byangels rowers boat and appeared to Santiago, to give encouragement while preaching tothe people of the coast. It is the legend that the Church promoted to christianize the Neolithic cult stones: stone d´abalar, fecundantes rites, becomes barca of the Virgin (originof the Virgin of the boat) and the stone d´os cadrís, initiation rites and pass in your boat sail.


In all the Pilgrim hostel, Walker, or simply tourists, you will find different thematic exhibitions are located in the hallways, in the rooms and in the common rooms, which will make your stay a more enriching and have a differential value. Culture is what defines the people and communities, what has happened gives knowledge and makes us understand where we come from. For this reason we turn this space into something else, in a cultural look to our round, in a look at who we are. Poems of different writers who illustrate the walls, exhibition panels that give information of the monuments in the area, tributes to writers who have portrayed some of Muxia in his texts, and a thematic exhibition that tells what is Costa da Morte, their shipwrecks and their traditions, portrayed by the illustriouslate photographer Ramón Caamaño, which dedicates a tribute.
