Where Does it Stop?

Without a doubt, the Camino ends at the tomb in the Cathedral of Santiago. This, and no other, should be the end of the pilgrimage. Any road that leads to Compostela must be considered to be the Camino de Santiago. But you can end up in another place this year and decide to continue from that point next year. Certainly, ending in Santiago has its benefits, especially all through this Holy Year, but if you only have a little time and you only do the last segment in Galicia, you risk not getting to know the real Camino de Santiago due to the huge number of pilgrims at the end of the Camino.
