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 we explain the stories they hide.


The visit begins in the 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 15th century in which the sailors from Pontevedra conquered the seas, and we will arrive at the present time, 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 at the end of the 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.

Route: Praza da Ferrería, Iglesia da Peregrina, Alameda, Santa María la Mayor, Praza Teucro, Praza da Leña, Mercado de Abastos.

Nuria ha sido una guía excepcional. Nos hizo un tour super ameno, lleno de historia, anécdotas, recomendaciones y curiosidades. Mi acompañante, que tiene problemas de audición, se enteró de todo muy bien y Nuria estuvo en todo momento pendiente de ella, hablaba con mucha claridad y proyectaba muy bien la voz. Nos ha gustado tanto el tour que nos ha hecho hasta replantearnos mudarnos a Pontevedra! Muchísimas gracias, Nuria, y muchísimas gracias We Galicia por tener tan buenas guías!

La hemos pasado hermoso pese a la lluvia torrencial. Cora es muy entretenida y nos dió detalles interesantes sobre todo. Le puso tan buena disposición y tanto ánimo aún con el clima, que salió todo muy bien. No hay que perderse este tour.
