Rías Baixas Day Trip
After meeting up at 9 am at the Capela do Pilar Church in the centre of Santiago, we'll set off on our route towards Pontevedra, capital of the province of the same name.
We'll embark on a guided tour of the historic centre of Pontevedra, whose old town is one of the best preserved in Galicia. Exploring its Medieval monumental complex, you'll be captivated by the Gothic ruins of the San Domingos Convent. We'll also get to admire the Renaissance influence on the city as we admire the magnificent Praza da Ferraría and the Basílica de Santa María a Maior.
Leaving Pontevedra behind, we'll next make our way to the port of the nearby town of Combarro, where a boat will be waiting for us. From here, we'll set sail across the Ría de Pontevedra. Our boat trip will take us past lush green coastal landscapes and the Tambo Island, whose eucalyptus plantations stand out in the estuary. During our boat cruise, we'll also enjoy a wine tasting with mussels, one of the most characteristic delicacies of the area.
After docking back in Combarro, you'll have free time to eat lunch in this picturesque town (not included). Then, in the afternoon, we'll head to O Grove to catch a glimpse of the Praia da Lanzada, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Galicia.
For the finishing touch on your day trip, we'll do a walking tour of Cambados, a coastal town on the Arousa Estuary. Here, we'll get to appreciate the architectural details of the Igrexa de San Bieito church and the Pazo de Fefiñáns, a 16th century palace home to countless incredible stories.
