Galicia is a verdurous land of thundering rivers and aromatic eucalyptus forests, of majestic palaces and exemplary beaches that look like they are straight from a Caribbean postcard. You can find holiday rentals all across the region, from the region’s main hubs of Vigo and Coruña, to ambrosial small coastal hamlets such as San Cibrao that make a perfect base for exploring the coastline, to the many inland towns with a very different character such as the famous Santiago de CompostelaTraditional stone houses
In Galicia traditional stone houses are prevalent in the countryside and also in the older parts of small towns. They provide charm and character in stunning locations. In the main cities you can choose from a myriad of flats, both small and large, and in the small towns dotted the Atlantic coast you can find flats with extraordinary sea views.
Holidays in Galicia
The area and getting around
Galicia is divided into three zones. Urban Galicia – the two main cities of Vigo and Coruña, which offer visitors top notch restaurants and historical sights, and which are also an excellent base from which to explore the region’s natural wonders. Coastal Galicia – peppered by a number of lovely small towns, you will be astounded by the region’s rural coastline. Inland Galicia – One of Spain’s most mysterious areas. Its rivers meet at the region’s heart, moulding the landscape into vast canyons and vertiginous, lush, green valleys.A paradise for food
One of the richest regions in Spain when it comes to gastronomy, make sure to try out Pulpo a Feira – boiled octopus on bed of perfectly cooked potatoes – an authentic Galician dish that actually melts in your mouth, or Mejillones al Vapor, mussels steamed with a squeeze of lemon, or in winter, Cocido Gallego, a traditional stew full of hearty flavours like pork shoulder, chorizo, chickpeas, cabbage and turnip. Scrumptious!
Travellers and activities
Ssshhh!! If you don’t know yet, let it be our secret. Galicia is home to some of the most spectacular beaches in Europe. In fact, the entirety of the Galician coastline is dotted with simply sensational, unspoilt, sandy beaches. The best one of all? Arguably the Cathedrals, where the sea has sculpted an astounding work of natural art, 30-metre high arches which are unveiled when the tide subsides. The beach is located just outside the town of Ribadeo.Galicia for hikers
Home to many marked trails, with dramatic coastal, mountainous and forested landscapes, this is a hikers paradise. The Way of the Lighthouses is a big favourite. Running along the northern coast, it passes a multitude of beaches, dunes, forests, rugged cliffs, and river estuaries, and is one of the most stunningly beautiful hikes in the region.
Galicians sure love to sunbathe and party. Galicia is home to more than 750 beaches and 4,000 official beach parties are held here annually!
