What is there to see in Pontevedra and the surrounding area?
Pontevedra is a city full of history. Proof of this is its old town, the second most important in Galicia. So although it is a medium-sized city, there is plenty to see, starting with the iconic Puente del Burgo, which, being a city of Roman origin, in its time was called “Pontus Veteris” (Old Bridge). The city is full of historic squares, such as the Plaza de la Peregrina, Plaza de la Leña and the Plaza de Herrería.
As well as the squares, Pontevedra also has many chapels and churches, such as the Santuario de la Virgen Peregrina, the Basílica de Santa María and the Church of San Francisco. It also has ruins, like the ruins of the Convento de Santo Domingo, which now form part of the Pontevedra Museum.
As for the towns that lie both on the coast and in the interior, there are many places worth visiting, starting with Combarro, located just 5 miles from the centre of Pontevedra, and which is considered the most beautiful town in Galicia. For lovers of white wine, the benefits of living near Cambados, the cradle of Galician white wine, are incalculable.
If you want to get to know some of its beaches, Pontevedra will not disappoint you, as it has some of the best beaches in Galicia, such as La Lanzada (El Grove), Playa de Pragueira (Sanxenxo) and Playa de Barra (Cangas Do Morrazo).
What is there to see in the Rías Baixas?
The Rías Baixas is one of the most beautiful and interesting areas of Galicia. With enclaves such as Cabo Silleiro, very close to Baiona, or the Cíes Islands, which together with the Island of Ons form the Atlantic Islands of Galicia National Park. All of this makes the Rías Baixas area one of the most beautiful natural places in Spain.
Furthermore, its proximity to Portugal makes the area even more attractive to live in, since it is an ideal city for trips to the neighbouring country and enjoying incredible landscapes, as an excuse to discover its gastronomy.
