General information and recomendations about the selected destination
Galicia looks out over the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of Biscay with over two thousand years of history behind it. To explore these mountainous lands in the north-west of Spain means a chance to live the adventure of a lifetime, full of tradition, lush landscapes and unique cities. In Galicia, the frontiers between sea and land cancel each other out. Both blend together along the 1,300 kilometres of coastline, 772 beaches, five large rias (long sea lakes that stretch inland) and over 1000 rivers where, tradition has it, the right hand of God created its dramatically shaped coastline. Local history offers every visitor its enigmatic castros (Celtic dwellings) with their peculiar citadels; and in them, perhaps, discover the Celts, ancient occupants of an evocative granite world (the castros at Baroña -Porto do Son-, Viladonga -Castro do Rei- or Santa Tegra -A Guarda- are the best-preserved). The traveller can also see Gallaecia, the Roman Galicia. And then there is the majestic ancient UNESCO city of Santiago de Compostela, one of the most religious cities in the world famous for its pilgrimage routes. Galicia the land of the fiesta a tribute to its gastronomy.
