Tour description

In this essential free tour we will visit the historic center of Pontevedra . We will cross the pedestrian streets of the Old City while explaining the stories they hide.

The visit begins at Praza da Ferrería , in the very heart of the city, where we will explain the evolution of Pontevedra through the centuries. We will begin with its beginnings as a strategic point to cross the river in Roman times, we will go through that busy fifteenth century in which the sailors of Pontevedra conquered the seas, and we will arrive at the present, when Pontevedra is considered a model of urban development that has obtained various international awards.

Which Greek hero is the legendary founder of the city? How did Pontevedra become such a powerful city in the late Middle Ages? What are the best places to enjoy Galician food? What is behind the mysterious Pedro Madruga and why has he been so important to human history?

A different visit in the heart of the Rías Baixas and with many stories and curiosities to discover.
