Tour description

The historic center of Pontevedra, known as "O Burgo", is an architectural treasure that captivates its visitors with its medieval charm. Located on the banks of the Lérez River, this urban complex has managed to preserve its original layout over the centuries. Its narrow, cobbled streets invite you to get lost in a labyrinth of history and culture. Among its architectural jewels stands out the imposing Basilica of Saint Mary, a Gothic masterpiece from the 16th century that captivates with its impressive façade and richly decorated interior.

Plaza de la Leña, in the heart of the old town, witnesses the daily life of its inhabitants and houses a lively traditional market where you can find local products and crafts. Another emblematic point is the Plaza de la Verdura, where a colorful market of fresh fruits and vegetables is displayed.

As you walk through this labyrinth of historic streets, you will discover numerous buildings of heritage value, such as old stately homes, churches and convents. The calm and welcoming atmosphere invites you to take a leisurely stroll and admire the architectural details that evoke bygone eras. The historic center of Pontevedra has been the subject of an important revitalization and pedestrianization process, making it an ideal place to enjoy outdoor life.
