The capital of the Rías Baixas
The best way to explore Pontevedra is on foot. A tour of its elegant and well-maintained historic centre will cover the Basilica of Santa María La Mayor, a jewel of Gothic architecture, and the Church of the Pilgrim Virgin, a chapel with a scallop-shaped floor plan which is beautifully illuminated at night. You’ll learn more about the history of the city by visiting the five sites of the Museum of Pontevedra: the Convent of Santo Domingo, the Sarmiento Palace, the Castro Monteagudo building, the García Flórez building and the Fernández López building.
A few kilometres from the city, the Rías Baixas open into the Atlantic, and there you can enjoy fantastic sunsets in places including the island of A Toxa, urban beaches such as Silgar in Sanxenxo, or immense golden sands like A Lanzada.
