Cities of Galicia

Galicia's cities have it all... and only a step away.

A Coruña

Either during the day or at night, there is always life here. This is a city for strolling and enjoying.


A city hardened by a thousand battles, Ferrol is a wise mixture of culture, urban elegance and military power.


Lugo is also and, above all, a city with a splendorous Roman past, which is evidenced by its Wall which is a World Heritage Site, its Roman Baths or its Roman Bridge.


Ourense is the city of water. Here eight bridges cross the Miño river, which in Roman times was a gold mine. Today there is no gold, but very valuable waters: thermal spring waters. 


In Pontevedra everything is just a step away and there is so much to see…Genuine treasures, such as the collection of gold and silver pieces in the Museum of Pontevedra, unique in Europe, with magnificent jewellery dating back 4,000 years.

Santiago de Compostela

World Heritage Site since 1985, for centuries Santiago de Compostela  has attracted visitors and pilgrims from all over the world. It is Galicia's most cosmopolitan city, but it takes it in a matter-of-fact way, which is why from the very beginning you feel like you are a part of it.


This is Vigo, Galicia's largest city. A modern and venturous city, open to the world.
