Points of Interest & Landmarks
As long as it is in the morning, we’ll pick you up in a luxury vehicle at the place and time we agree on. Your guide will be waiting for you on the vehicle. Your guide is a knowledgeable person in history, customs and important places you can’t miss.
During the journey of the Rías Bajas, which is the first area we want to show you, you’ll admire the beauty of the coast until you meet the small fishing village of Combarro, which is famous for its gorgeous hórreos (granaries), you will discover what we’re talking about when you are in the place and contemplate them with your own eyes. Here you will also enjoy the traditional architecture of Galicia when you go up the village and walk through its squares.
We’ll continue the journey towards the town of Poio, a place blessed by its location, from here you can appreciate both the coast and the city of Pontevedra. You can also visit the Monastery of Poio although we are sure that the library of the place will get your attention since it contains a book as small as a little finger.
Lastly, we’ll arrive to Pontevedra and let our selves by captivated by its squares, monuments, and religious buildings as the Iglesia de la Peregrina (Pilgrims Church) and the Basílica de Santa María la Mayor; but we’ll also refresh our throats by having a drink in the Plaza La Leña (Firewood Square) or in Plaza de las Verduras (Vegetables Square). As an additional fact, you should eat some octopus, especially in the Plaza de las Peregrinas, since there is no other place in Galicia that prepares it better.
At dusk we’ll go back to Vigo, but not before taking more than one picture of the landscape around us, while the guidetells us some other information left on his sleeve.
