Galicia looks out over the Atlantic Ocean and the Cantabrian Sea with two millennia of history, something that is immediately perceived by the traveler who comes to visit us. To travel through these lands of the northwest of Spain allows to live a unique adventure of tradition, lush landscapes and unique cities. In Galicia, the borders between land and sea are neutralized. Both merge along 1,300 kilometers of coastline, 772 beaches and their river characteristics, navigable 365 days a year.
Each visitor can rescue from the memory of this town the enigmatic castros with their peculiar citadels; and in them, perhaps, discover the Celts, ancient settlers of a totally suggestive granitic world (the castros of Baroña – Porto do Son -, Viladonga – Castro de Rei – or Santa Tegra – A Guarda – are the best preserved). He also travels to Gallaecia, Roman Galicia. Still standing is the great Roman Wall of Lugo, a unique fortified enclosure, with a circular structure and a perimeter of 2,200 meters preserved since the 3rd century, which makes it unique in the world, and declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site in the year 2000.
Immediately something different is perceived here. In this fertile land undoubted connections with the Celtic towns are seen.
Galicia is also the land of the thousand rivers. From the mountains of Os Ancares, O Courel or Pena Trevinca (with altitudes exceeding 1,800 meters) the waters of many of them descend. Father Miño crosses Galicia from northeast to southwest to end placidly on the border with Portugal. The fluvial channels are as varied as the landscape: thus, the impressive Sil Canyons in the Ribeira Sacra (whose river is the main tributary of the Miño and through which you can sail in a comfortable catamaran), a land of marked unevenness and conducive to the cultivation of the vine.
The exit from Galicia to the sea takes place through the estuaries. Highlands and Baixas that rub shoulders with the landscape and provide an incomparable framework for the practice of Nautical Tourism, with 17 blue flag ports: Nautical Club of Ribadeo, Ria de Ares Nautical Club, Nautical Club of Sada, Royal Nautical Club A Coruña Marina Real , Marina Coruña, Puerto Deportivo de Camariñas, Club Náutico de Portosín, Club Náutico de Ribeira, Marina Cabo de la Cruz-Boiro; Marina of Vilanova de Arousa, Puerto Pedras Negras, Portonovo Nautical Club, Juan Carlos I Marina, Baiona Marina, Combarro Marina, Marina Dávila-Vigo, and Monte Real Yacht Club.
