Discovering Vigo and Baiona

 During this amazing 4. 30 hours Tour, in a confortable transport, you will see all the most popular sights and experience the best parts of Vigo and southern Galicia; what we call ‘Rias Baixas‘.  We will go from the ‘roaring 20’s look of the city centre – with its modernist buildings –  towards the historical Castro Hill, an ancient fortress these days a park, with its great views over the Atlantic ocean. We will see the Cies Islands in the distance and the fishermen villages and holiday resorts such as Cangas and Bueu. The popular Bateas, platforms to produce mussels in a traditional way, will surprise for their looks over the sea. Heading south, we will pass near one of the longest beaches and certainly one of the most popular urban ones: Samil beach. No surprise to find in this area relics of a II century a.C.  roman villa. They had good taste!

Late evening from Rande's bridge, near Vigo with bateas producing mussels in its atlantic waters.

The trip will develop between ancient and new villas, buildings for summer holidays and the Ocean, passing by a legendary medieval bridge in Ramallosa which has a beautiful legend about being able to have babies… The attractive seaside resort Baiona will welcome us with its medieval MonterrealFortress – these days a 4 stars Parador/Hotel, whose gardens we will visit to enjoy the views and the stories related with this part of the coast of Spain. After that we will head towards the  tiny and beautiful baroque old part of town where, if you decide so, you may do some shopping or have some drinks.

As soon as we reach Vigo again and we will have to  say goodbye, I will show you best places for  some tapas or tasting some fresh oysters along with a good glass of white spanish Rias Baixas/ Albariño wine! The city centre for some shopping opens all day for later..DSC_0596
