In the most extreme northeast of Spain we can find a magical land, full of unforgettable legends, pilgrimages, and spectacular landscapes. We are talking about Galicia, a paradise tinged with green and blue colors, inhabited by friendly people, and with gastronomy that will conquer your palate like no other.
In addition to its iconic city of Santiago de Compostela, with a visit to its cathedral and its historic center, this region surprises with its numerous monumental and artistic heritage. Modernist cities, monasteries, churches, chapels, castles, medieval villas, Roman remains, petroglyphs, dolmens, and forts dot its territory, all routes that cause its cultural wealth to assault us at every step, through history, curiosities and Galician legends.
Clinging to its customs, Galicia feels like a city from many centuries ago, its inhabitants preserve their original language, Galician, a mix between Spanish and Portuguese that makes you feel in a unique place.
The Beaches of the Cathedrals are one of the most famous here. Its main attraction is a group of arch-shaped rock formations that look like entrances to ancient religious temples, perfect for taking the best pictures. There is also Finesterre, a coastal village dreamed to walk the trails and let yourself fall in love with the landscapes.
Galicia is also a land of forests: to enter the Galician forests is also to enter the magical legends that have been passed down from generation to generation and are now part of its imagination. Let yourself be enveloped by the humid air, the scent of its trees and the sound of the water that makes its way through the rivers will awaken in travelers sensations that they have rarely experienced.
Finally, the most important for many. Gastronomy. Tradition and excellent raw materials combine to give us a wide range of dishes and products and make Galician cuisine to suit all tastes. When you travel to Galicia your palate will be treated to a festival of flavors and textures that you will not forget.
