Galicia – Spectacular Coast!
Its capital, Santiago de Compostela is the final destination on the Way of Saint James, the famous pilgrim route. For this reason alone it is worth visiting this region in Green Spain.
You’ll love its landscapes full of green wooded valleys, and its amazing beaches. All along the length of its coastline, bathed by the Cantabrian Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll find areas of spectacular cliffs like those on A Costa da Morte, or the incredible Islas Atlánticas National Park.
Visit its numerous charming villages, both on the sea and inland, and cities such as Santiago de Compostela, A Coruña, Ferrol, Lugo, Orense, Pontevedra and Vigo. You will be amazed by visiting its many monuments such as the Tower of Hercules or Lugo’s city walls, both designated World Heritage Sites by the UNESCO.
Galicia’s delicious gastronomy is one of its strong points, and features a variety of typical products and dishes, including its shellfish, veal, octopus “a feira” (with potatoes), gammon with turnip greens or the almond tart known as “Tarta de Santiago”. And what could be better than two of its most famous wines, Ribeiro and Albariño (each with their own Wine Route) to accompany such delicacies. Or the popular “queimada”? Performing the “Conxuro” as alcoholic spirits are set alight in an earthenware bowl according to the local ritual?
If you feel like relaxing, why not make the most of Galicia’s reputation as a land of SPA`s and open-air hot springs? And if you fancy a little sport, you can always go to any of its golf courses or marine resorts…
