OUR CONXURE TO MAKE THE BEST FREETOURS: Take a container and fill it with good HISTORICAL RIGOR, add two teaspoons of imagination, a pinch of theatricality, two twigs of emotion and suspense and water it with youth and enthusiasm. Mark it, they took it out of my hands, or was it from the broom?

Tour description

We will begin our tour in the Atlante - although also known as Palanquín - our guide will be there to tell us about the origins of Sanxenxo with the best of his smiles.

Well, on this tour we will discover all the necessary elements of 2 of the most touristic towns in the Salnés area - Sanxenxo and Portonovo , both of which have faced each other since time immemorial and which even have nicknames to refer to each other. Galician culture more present than ever!

In addition to that, you will also discover the fishing techniques used in this area to catch a good octopus . Admit it, I'm conquering you! Note that this is not all.

In addition to all this, we will make reference to the ecclesiastical and what would be of the towns without the multiple churches, as well as the Saints who each have a legend behind them that is more peculiar than the previous one. Although there are three that stand out: San Ginés - Did you know that Sanxenxo in Spanish is San Ginés? - San Roque - Did you know that Roque means STRONG ? Well, this saint was very fashionable between the 19th and 20th centuries, so to speak he was the Ibai and the Lolalolita of the time and we cannot forget the jewel of the Crown - Santa Catalina who displaced San Roque today.

And speaking of legends... They couldn't be missing from this tour to give it the meiga touch that characterizes this tour. Have I convinced you? Book and come feel the excitement!
