Galicia is in the north-western corner of Spain. It is the most forgotten of the seven Celtic nations. Even so, it has some of the oldest Celtic traditions, going back more that 2000 years. Ancient Galicia´s borders were much different than today´s, they stretched into neighboring provinces of Asturias, Leon, Zamora, Salamanca, Avila, and down into the Green Coast of Northern Portugal. The stone and water crazy Galicians have equals in their Celtic brothers of Brittany, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Isle of Man and Cornwall.
Traveling in Galicia, one can sense this Celtic feeling coming back from the ancient times. One does not see the calm magic of Galicia, one breathes it in: in the genuine hospitality of the people; in the popular fiestas and carnivals. In the fruits which land and sea share out generously to locals and strangers: seafood, meat, fish and wine. Also in the restful pleasure of the parador hotels, or experience the rural beauty in accommodations like Monasteries, Castles, Convents, Manor Houses (Pazos) and Country B&B´s converted into beautiful rural inns all with there own distinct character. That is the magic of Galicia. Always attractive. Always... UNFORGETTABLE.
