To shatter all the usual stereotypical images of Spain, Galicia is the place to go. Fresh and verdant, it has gushing rivers and a coastline more reminiscent of Scotland than Spain. The most forgotten of the seven Celtic nations, the land is steeped with an age-old atmosphere, which travellers can share in cathedrals, castles, Dolmens and Hill-forts.
