And obviously, tell you also where to taste the most delicious dishes of the area and which places to have a good wine.
But back to the journey, as soon as you board your private vehicle, it will head to the Old Town of Pontevedra, which is the first mandatory stop in this tour. It is one of the best preserved historical centers of Galicia, in it you will find the ruins of the Convent of Santo Domingo, La Iglesia de la Peregrina and the three most emblematic squares of the place such as La Leña (The Firewood), Verdura (The vegetables) and Herrería (The Blacksmithing), each with a name that denotes the function that has fulfilled throughout the history of the town.
After such a trip to the past, the next destination will be the picturesque fishing village of Combarro, a popular place for its granaries and also for the beautiful old houses that dress up the entire small town. If you want to eat a good plate of mussels, this would be the right place, since near here you will find the mussels bat and Tambo Island, places that can be accessed in a short boat ride, which turns out to be the most educational because they explain everything about the cultivation of mussels in the area.
Once you have eaten and rested a little, the next exotic place will be Playa A Lanzada a jewel in the middle of this entire coastal area, nothing can be compared to the turquoise color of its waters, in contrast to the white color of its sand. Near this beach, where you can take a dip if you wish, we will find several places of interest like for instance the Torre de la Lanzada, the Castro de la Lanzada and the Hermitage of Our Lady of the Lanzada. Each of these sites you must visit and admire them for how they have maintained their majesty over the years.
The last point to visit, before you must return to the Port of A Coruña is Cambados another small town on the coast that has a great wine tradition, so we have saved it for last, here you will visit the winery and vineyards of Pazo and taste the occasional cup so you know the quality of local production. Here you can admire the Church of San Benito located in the Fefiñanes Square and you will take a walk through the town before getting on your way back to board your cruise again, but this time you take with you the beautiful view of the Rias Baixas.
The area: Rias Baixas
The name of the Rias Baixas, was given by Ferdinand Von Richthofen, who was the uncle of the famous German pilot of the First World War, known as the “Red Baron”. The choice of name is due to the uniqueness of its geographical environment. Geologically it is one of the oldest areas in all of Galicia, making its exact origin estimated at 110 million years ago.
The Rias Baixas also have the highest waterfall in the entire Galician territory, it is the Toxa waterfall that has a height of 30 meters in free fall and is located in the municipality of Silleda.
