Our pilgrimage to the tomb of the apostle on the Way of St. James, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a European Cultural Itinerary by the Council of Europe, starts in the south of the Rías Baixas, in the historic town of Baiona, where the arrival of the caravel La Pinta on 1 March 1493 announced the news of the Discovery of America. Protected from the open sea by a beautiful bay is the Monterreal peninsula, where the Parador awaits you in the walled fortress. A paradise for tasting fish and seafood. From there you will enjoy dreamy sunsets where, in the distance, the Cíes Islands invite you to visit their cliffs, their beaches and dunes, their seabed and their unspoilt paths.
Within the walled enclosure is the Baiona Royal Yacht Club, where you can go sailing and enjoy nautical tourism. You cannot leave Baiona without taking a tour of Monte do Boi and the Serra da Groba, from which the Rías Baixas look like a sober and colourful watercolour, without seeing the sunset at Cabo Silleiro, without visiting the Virgen da Roca viewpoint or without strolling through its splendid old town and its promenade.
