Both Vigo and Pontevedra are welcoming cities, with a lot of charm and numerous corners where you can disconnect. Pontevedra is one of the most recommended cities in Galicia to live in due to its varied leisure offer: beaches, mountains, charming towns, gastronomy, history, culture... And, in addition, it can boast of having been declared by the UN as the most comfortable to live in Europe. As if that were not enough, it has also won the Dubai International Award for its quality of life. As far as Vigo is concerned, this city stands out for the quality of its education, cleanliness, waste management and costs of living. For all these reasons, at Habitat Inmobiliaria we have different new construction developments in Pontevedra and Vigo, seeking to offer all possible alternatives.

The city of Vigo, in addition to being the most populated in Galicia, is one of those cities that offers a wide variety of plans throughout the year. Enjoying its famous Christmas lights or admiring its bay from one of its many viewpoints are unique moments that only Vigo can offer.
If you are looking for a place that brings together beaches, mountains, monuments and a diverse cultural offer, Vigo is the right city to buy your new construction apartment. Haste and stress are put aside to make way for terraces with friends, magnificent cuisine and an incomparable landscape.
Why choose to live in Vigo or Pontevedra?
Pontevedra is a city full of history. Proof of this is its old town, the second most important in Galicia, so even though it is a medium-sized city, there is a lot 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 squares full of history, such as Plaza de la Peregrina, Plaza de la Leña or Plaza de Herrería.
In addition to squares, Pontevedra also has sanctuaries such as the Pilgrim Virgin, basilicas such as Santa María, churches such as San Francisco and ruins such as the Santo Domingo Convent that currently make up the Pontevedra Museum.
As for the towns that are both on the coast and inland, there are many places that are worth visiting, starting with Combarro, located just 8 kilometers from the center of Pontevedra and which is considered the most beautiful town in Galicia. For good lovers of white wine, the value of living near Cambados, the cradle of Galician white wine, cannot be calculated.
If you fancy visiting any of its beaches, Pontevedra will not disappoint you, as it has some of the best beaches in Galicia, such as La Lanzada beach (El Grove), Pragueira beach (Sanxenxo) or Barra (Cangas Do Morrazo).
On the other hand, Vigo, being located on the coast, offers many possibilities to enjoy beautiful natural landscapes. The National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia offers the possibility of visiting the so-called 'Galician Caribbean' of the Cíes Islands or the Ons Islands. If, on the contrary, you are more of monuments and cosmopolitan plans, you can also find special places such as the Puerta del Sol or the Vigo Cathedral in the center of the city. As well as a wide range of cultural leisure, with theaters, cinemas and museums.
In short, both Vigo and Pontevedra are cities where there is a large increase in new-build developments, so there is quite a selection when it comes to buying newly-built apartments and houses in an unbeatable environment.
