About the Tour

Explore the lesser-known Pontevedra in this hour and a half visit where we will tell you about the perfect mix between Christianity and paganism that exists in Galician lands.

We will tell you about all the Celtic influence that has marked the culture of the area for centuries knowing how and where they lived, where they came from and with what places those Celtic ties are shared throughout the European continent.

One of the things that attracts the most attention is knowing the history of Samaín, the ancient Samhain of Celtic origin and known throughout the world as Halloween, a holiday that has been celebrated here since time immemorial and that had a macabre side but always looking for the future welfare of the inhabitants of the area.

Other festivities of pagan origin such as the night of San Juan, celebrated in almost all of Galicia, is one of the most important festivities in this place and you will learn about its origin and way of celebrating it, while we go through various squares in the old town of Pontevedra and discover the various types of typical constructions of the area such as the pallozas.

Another point of interest that the city has is the fact that it forms part of the Camino de Santiago on its Portuguese side. The neighboring country has among its symbols the famous Rooster of Barcelos , which has a beautiful legend behind it and that, as night falls, we will tell you about in the beautiful streets of Pontevedra.

We will see the importance of Carnival in Galicia, Holy Week, the meaning of the Cruceiros and Hórreos , or miracles that occurred in this place showing, once again, that perfect harmony that, century after century, has been achieved between the Christian and the pagan .

Route: Praza da Leña, Church of San Bartolomé, Food Market, Plaza das Cinco Rúas, Santuario das Apariciones and Ponte do Burgo.
