After admiring its architectural richness, we offer you another curiosity: as a fishing community, Póvoa de Varzim has the tradition of the Poveira’s brand, symbol that the locals used as emblems of the families and that demonstrated the ownership of their goods.

You can also visit the incredible boat-museum – Gil Eanes – that was once a hospital.
The gastronomy of Viana is something you should not miss because it is really exquisite. To taste the typical cod and other dishes and desserts, as well as their Green wines, is something that needs to be done – and it’s like this that we celebrate another stage successfully achieved.

In A Guarda, in the south of the province of Pontevedra, you can enjoy the colourful and unique seafront promenade, among other things to discover, not forgetting the potential of this area in seafood.
As a curiosity, there is a route to visit Indian buildings, located in the urban centre and built in the second half of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century by the emigrants of A Guarda from Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Brazil. And for the more adventurous, we suggest you to climb the Monte de Santa Tegra, the second most visited place in Galicia, after the Cathedral of Santiago.
In Pontevedra you can visit the Sanctuary of the Pilgrim’s, a church in the shape of a scallop shell, and also at this locality, you can admire the beautiful preserved historical centre.
The following route takes place between Pontecesures and Padrón, near Compostela. The most picturesque places to visit in Pontecesures are the Miradouros of Galiñeiro and Piñeiro Manso; the Ribeiras of San Pedro; the castro in Finca de Acevedo; the marina district of Monte do Porto and the walk by the riverside through the port. As curiosity it is relevant to mention that it is considered that the denomination of Padrón comes from “Pedrón”, which is kept under the main altar of the church of Santiago.
According to the Jacobean tradition, the Roman altar, now currently dedicated to the god Neptune, was the mooring point of the ship, which in the first century AD, around 44 AD, moved the lifeless body of the apostle James from Haffa (Palestine) to the port of Iria Flavia.
Finally, you will enter the city of Santiago de Compostela through Rosalía de Castro’s Avenue to Obradoiro Square and its majestic Cathedral which is the end of the route and also an exciting and magical moment.
