Leave Santiago behind for a day and discover the charms of Galicia's coastal villages on this day trip to Pontevedra, Cambados and Combarro. Plus, enjoy a catamaran cruise on the Ría de Arousa from O Grove!
Pontevedra Tour & Catamaran Cruise
Having picked you up from your selected meeting point in Santiago de Compostela between 8:40 am and 9 am, we'll set off to the south in the direction of Pontevedra, around a 50 minute drive away.
Reaching this medieval city, we'll embark on an hour-long guided tour of its historic centre, admiring its most important monuments. Discover the Capela da Virxe Peregrina church and its curious façade, the Basílica de Santa María a Maior, the historic San Telmo Street and Praza da Leña.
After our guided tour of Pontevedra, we'll head back to the bus and drive to Combarro, famous for its many hórreos, the unique grain storing sculptures found around every corner of the town. Here you'll be immersed in traditional Galician seafaring culture.
We'll then make our way to O Grove, located around 30 minutes away, where we'll set sail on a catamaran cruise on the Ría de Arousa. During our hour and 20 minute long boat trip, we'll enjoy a tasting of wine and mussels - you'll soon see why this town is known as the capital of seafood!
Back on dry land, you'll have around two hours of free time to explore O Grove at your leisure and to have lunch. Afterwards, we'll make a brief stop in Cambados, a town famous for its production of excellent Albariño wines.
At the end of the day, we'll head back to Santiago de Compostela, where you'll be dropped back off between 6:30 pm and 6:50 pm.
